BOBBY AND THANE TACKLE THE TRANSAM Day 23; Rest Day

Day 23..Thane’s Blog: ”’absolute rubbish”

Thursday May 23, 2013, 64 miles (103 km) – Total so far: 1,196 miles (1,924 km)

It really did feel like a rest day. The internal alarm still went off at 5:45 am but I’m ok with that. We did a little continental breakfast action down in the lobby then hung out at Starbucks drinking coffee and listening to Ruff Stuff’s opinion about the unfortunate state of chocolate in our country. “Absolute rubbish!” Every time he says it both Bobby and I bust up laughing. Absolute rubbish…….. Say it three times really fast with a thick English accent. You will probably bust up laughing too.

After the coffee at Starbucks ran out we walked over to Dick’s Sporting Goods and scored Ruff Stuff a new tent and sleeping pad. The back of his bike truly looks like a rolling yard sale. I love it

Got to catch up on the blogs. Got to I-chat my wife. Got to Facebook my grandkids. Got to pick up boo from the bike shop (awesome job guys from the Bike Surgeon shop here in town, I very highly recommend these guys!!) Got to eat like a pig.

Tomorrow our little band of brothers again heads west. As of now, destination unknown. We will worry about that as the day rolls on.
