End of Stage 1 – Planet Ramble

Well, Stage 1 of our Planet Ramble  is coming to a conclusion.  Kim somehow has gotten the flu.  The forecast for  Denali which was our next destination  is for 6 days of rain.  So we are  going to  call it quits on this stage.  Kim has done an amazing job running through gravel, mud and sand.  She rides much better than she gives herself credit for.

So we are headed to Anchorage and will ship the bikes home to await Stage 2.  I am so lucky  to  have  found a soul mate like her.  I can’t wait for  Stage 2 to begin.
