Even in Alaska, you can win the weather jackpot
two weekends in a row. Sunday on the Eklutna Lake trail
was perfect. Blue skies, warm air and
the usual beautiful scenery. Great people to ride with,
and a cooler of icy Cokes back at the parking lot.

Heather and Jordan round the bend
beneath Serenity Falls.

A sleep-deprived Carlos keeps truckin'
after riding all night to train
for the Soggy Bottom 100.

We are not alone.

(Let's just hope the aliens
don't observe the Soggy
and conclude that our
entire species is insane.)

One guy. 400 miles. That's pretty easy math, to me.

I don't know what those people are thinking. I was tired enough after the 24-hour race, and we were on a team.

is that why we build carrons
so that others know they are not alone?
