In a move that exceeded everyone's expectations (including my own), the Jeep survived two long days of driving and delivered me safely to Lawrence, Kansas yesterday afternoon. On Monday I overslept, starting my drive at 10:30 am, and arrived in Louisville, Kentucky 11 hours and 650 miles later. Yesterday I drove 550 miles from Louisville to Lawrence, where I am staying with my friend Benn Stover, who, at one time or another, was a fellow inmate at Lees-McRae.
Yesterday evening we hit Lawrence's River Trails. Super fast, flowy singletrack that runs through a park near downtown. Definitely some of the most fun trails I've ridden lately. Today we hit the roads for almost 50 miles. It's nice to break up the drive with a day and a half of fun and riding.
Tomorrow morning I'll head out from Lawrence and, allegedly, will arrive in Golden at around 5pm. I'm super excited to get back to Golden after this past year away!
