    You know, if I'd have been riding with you (right!!) you'd have finished with a 14:00:00 moving time :). Congrat's to you all.

    Thanks for pulling so much in the beginning of the ride. I agree -- the hardest ride I've done.

    Great meeting you, Rich! I wish I had had the opportunity to do the Tahoe Rim Trail, but it was 1) an odd day for hikers only and 2) there were so many cars there, it isn't like I could have crept around folks with a smile and pleasant "Hello's." There were over 40 or 50 vehicles at the trail head. Went to breakfast to King's Beach, as it was my wife's birthday, so that was the right thing to do (Happy wife, Happy life!). Your ride looks like it was a kicker! Congrats for completing it!

    Michael, I added to the difficulty by breaking a rear wheel spoke, dropping the tension in the rear wheel so the wheel would spin, and disconnecting the rear brake for everything from Carson Pass on. Then got food poisoning at lunch and had the hardest time trying to cross both sides of Ebbetts and even felt worse on Monitor. But thanks a ton for the thanks.

    Tim, next time you are in the area, let me know. We might just find a ride we can do together, and I will let you know when I am in your neck of the woods.
