I had a minor panic moment this morning when I thought it was only two weeks until I left for Tevis.


Turns out it's actually three weeks.

Whew.  I can breathe again.

However, I still can't remember what today it is today, and keep waffling back and forth on whether it's Tuesday or Wednesday.

And that's after three cups of coffee.

Everything is coming together, and I know everything that needs to get done will get done.  I think most of the "big stuff" is taken care of and it's about getting the details now...making sure I have enough camera batteries, picking up a couple more memory cards, figuring out which Renegade t-shirts are too well-loved to make the trip and which are still fit for public consumption.

This got added to my wardrobe:

Very nice collared, v-neck, tech-material polo that looks professional, is super-comfortable, and is the first thing going in my suitcase.  I already have my packing list started, just to write down those weird little things that I think about once -- like camera chargers -- and then promptly forget.  Fortunately I will have several days before the ride in which I will have access to civilization to figure out exactly what I forgot.

Blog buddies -- If we've talked about meeting up while I'm in Auburn, email me or Facebook me.  I have a pretty good idea of what my schedule will be like, so can make further plans and give you contact info.

I am getting SO excited.  Tevis's catching even if you're not riding.


  1. I sure need to get me some of whatever you on. I am dreading Tevis......


    1. Well, you do have the harder part, since you're the one gluing boots and I'm just helping.

  2. I'll bring some extra bedding and a pillow for you for Friday night if needed. Are you flying in or driving??? There's beds and stuff I'm sure but figured we might be crashing on couches/floor, etc. as well. I'm bringing my queen blowup mattress for friend + me.

    1. That would be awesome, thank you! I'm flying in to Sacramento and renting a car.
