Carla, Hillary & Mary enjoying dinner & friends & amazing eggplants!
Day #1 of Colorado Relaxed! The tribe arrived at the Recreation Center in Silverthorne to a mass of children, all shapes & sizes! The playground that we camp next to had been remodeled recently and it is THE place to bring your kids. I estimate that at dinner time there had to be 200 kids on the playground and another 40 skaters at the skate park! We're here for 3 nights......my patience may wear thin!
There are so many repeat riders on this tour! Hillary: her 3rd tour this year! We have 5 people on staff that rode or worked the "06 cross country tour: Jack, Marilynn, Spike, Bill & Isabel! Also gracing our presence are three staff members from the ACA office! I had better mind my manners!
Dinner tonight is honey glazed pork chops, Indian vegetable stew, (are the eggplants that we picked yesterday not gorgeous??), spinach & orange salad w/ honey mustard dressing and fresh corn on the cob. (Good job shucking that corn, Jamie!) The tribe ate well and did a pretty good job on the beer as well.
Tomorrow's ride is an easy 18 miles: a good start to get the low landers acclimated to the altitude! I know it took me a couple of days!
