Delayed

and then the phone rang...at 1am to inform me that my chance of getting to California early today to prep,  join the Pablove group dinner and ride meeting was not going to happen.  Then the 1/2 hour on the line trying to rearrange travel = a no go. I am crossing my fingers, as I am now scheduled to arrive in California 6.5 hours later than expected.  Lot's of weather across the country today and a portion of our ride route is under major wildfire alert, the conditions are prime. However the delay gets under the skin - all the hours getting sponsors on board, training, prepping gear, asking others for their hard earned money to support the cause and the journey get's put on pause.  Patience my dear boy...
