I said I'd make another post before I left town. Little did I know that was cursing my chances of actually doing so. Between the normal prerace packing and checklist double checking, this morning I got a nice surprise while dropping wifey off at work. The headlights in the Element no longer worked (although the brights did). I was not pleased to say the least.
I hurried to work while Marni called the dealer and let them know I was going to try to make it in. My boss was quite helpful and I was able to escape work for a few hours even though I'm about to leave for several days and by 11am I made it back to work with working headlights. Now I just quicly finished my lunch which leaves me the rest of the afternoon to prepare work things for my coworker while I'm gone. My "other" boss is on a 2 week trip to Europe hence the added craziness. I think I just might make it.
I can't wait to ride my bike!
P.S. Marni will have SPOT GPS updates of my progress posted in a new blog here or on her blog starting Friday morning.
