That's me on the left.
This was taken while Matt and Bill took a nature break.
A secret controle, my first! Thank you Curtis for setting this up. I was so happy to see chocolate milk!
We almost missed this controle. It was Bill who noticed we had made a wrong turn.
The fourth controle in Denver.
Post-ride food prepared by Rick's wife, Lora.
I have finished all my 200K's with Matt.
Lora! I don't think I have experienced such hospitality before.
I thought this was amusing. The receipt from the Honey Brook controle. A randonneur must keep up with the local news and gossip.

Paul Scearce and Tom Rosenbauer. In the background you can see Ron Anderson. He and his wife Barbara completed the brevet on a tandem.
Everyone enjoying food, drink and chat.
Bill Slabonik. That's Barbara Anderson paying attention. We all told our tales of the ride to each other.
