ain’t over ’til it’s over

11 04 2009

Just when I thought I was done with this adventure, a little addition was added.  Julie and I decided to ride the beginning of the ride with Phil this morning from Aurora, Colorado.  There was a huge group of hearty souls who had been waiting in the rain for over an hour … not by choice, but because we were unable to get the airstream attached due to a wiring problem.  Luckily, Scottie the camera man (AKA McGyver) figured out how to hot wire it using a modified extension cord that I got to hold against the car battery.  As has been the case all along, the weather decided to break right as we headed out.  I was feeling pretty emotional and was choking back a few tears as we rode along.  Julie and I decided to turn around at the 5 mile point as we had 25 miles or so to get us back to Denver.  This was the point that the flood gates opened.  No, I am not talking about pouring down rain, but my eyes.  I started crying like a little girl who got her Barbie stolen (or little boy who got his favorite toy truck stolen).  I think all of the emotions of the last 2 weeks decided to come out as I realized that the journey was over for me.  On Monday it is back to the “real world”, but I will cherish the memories of this trip into the REAL world.
