Garry McGivern’s bike-ride to Australia-and-beyond Sunday, 3rd-June-2012 Vernal to Maybell. 91 miles. Breakfast this morning was in the restaurant next door. And it was buffet style, and it’s the best breakfast I’ve had since I’ve been in the states! There were pancakes, muffins, eggs, bacon, sausage, and fruit. You get the picture. I made sure I got my money’s worth. I had several courses!
I crossed the border into Colorado today. The hills seem to be more rolling than in Utah, but still just as big! It’s been rather hot today, and the wind late this afternoon was like being under a hairdryer. I put my washing out this evening, and within half an hour, it was bone dry!
I’m camping tonight. The one motel in town didn’t have anything to offer me, e.g. the internet or a bar. There’s also nowhere to eat in town, so it was easier to camp and cook myself. I always worry about cooking in motel rooms. Any way I can save the money towards getting my tooth fixed by camping!
There’s a full moon tonight, by the looks of it. I hope there are no werewolves about. Mind you. If I smile at them, I’ll scare them anyway. I look more scary than normal with this missing tooth! I used to be a werewolf but okay, nowwwwww!
Don’t forget the main reason behind my ride. I want to raise as much money for cancer research charities as possible. After my wife, Josie, died of breast cancer in 2007, aged only 42. Even the smallest donation helps. You can donate to Cancer Research UK or the Australian National Breast Cancer Foundation. Click on either one to donate. Every little bit helps to rid the world of this cruel disease.
