last weekend

Don't confuse this with a lost weekend, though I suspect some might think it as much. Today I rode just over 100 miles from Spokane to Coeur d'Alene, around the south end of Lake Coeur d'Alene. It was an organized ride, otherwise I would have been killing myself the last 40 miles because there isn't any place to stop and buy food. However, when riding the Tour des Lacs, they provide the food. Tomorrow is the second part of the ride, 70 mile in a roundabout manner from Coeur d'Alene back to Spokane. If nothing else, I'll be worn out and should sleep well Sunday night. The only bummer about today is Rachel came to pick me up before my turn for a massage and my BIL (that's brother-in-law) couldn't make it, and he missed out on a great day of riding. Here's a pic from early this morning, just after sunrise. This is one of the many wheat fields we cycled alongside between Spokane and Plummer.

It's a decent picture for my cell phone, don't ya think? Tomorrow we revisit, assuming it's still there, the trough toilet.
