    Yeah, not bad at all. When I get back we'll have to talk about the 508. It looks like you're prepared!

    ...ish? Ok. We have lots of time. Still haven't started to recruit the rest of the team. You're my #1!

    Yeah, I have to fly to Seattle and drive my truck back. Who knows how tired I'll be... I may need to stop and sleep often, therefore the "ish".

    Did you get any sleep?

    Marshall, thanks for noticing the ride. I didn't get any sleep - that would have made it multiple rides. But I did take a few long breaks: Lunch in Lunada Bay, Dinner at Starbucks in Golden Cove, Breakfast at the same - and a couple of Mountain Dew breaks in Miraleste. I wanted to experience what it was like to ride through the night and continue after the sunrise. I did the Grand Tour Triple Century last year but finished at around 3:30am - I wanted to see what it was like to see the sun rise and keep going. This is part of my training for the Furnace Creek 508 in October.

    But I actually felt great. I'm now thinking of doing 19 laps (400 miles) in August and not taking breaks. The problem is that would be close to 35,000' which is more climbing than in the FC508. Interested in joining me? I had about 8 people start with me but they only last 2 laps. Then a friend rode 107 miles from the Valley to do laps 6 and 7 with me before he rode back home. One of the guys who rode with me in the morning found me at 12:30am and delivered an In-and-Out burger - which was a great surprise.

    I would be interested in riding a few laps with you to cheer you on. Let me know when you do this next time

    Hey Marshall. Connect with me on Facebook. I created a new Loopfest event on FB for 19 laps (400 miles) in about 3 weeks
