Ice Cream IS a food groupPosted: July 31, 2011
Met up with Bill (in the yellow jersey) today for a ride and some late stage planning. He is planning to meet me in Great Falls, Montana in a little over three weeks and we’ll ride together for about two weeks. Today we had Montana weather, I hope. We got about thirty miles in all told and it was a clear, hot day but with less humidity which makes for good riding. Yesterday was hotter and a lot more humid…not very pleasant. We stopped at the lakeside cafe in Boiling Springs to have refreshments and discuss details about the traveling to come such as how many miles a day we expect to ride, how often we expect to be camping as opposed to using motels and how often a day can one eat ice cream. As I told Bill, they say humans can go for approximately 30 days without food, but I start getting edgy after about 3 hours so staying properly fueled (food of course) on the ride will be a priority. AND, ice cream is surely a food of choice. The picture on the patio was taken by an old friend from the Carlisle YMCA who happened to be enjoying the afternoon as we were.
