Which presents a few problems - I don't really want to drive 100 miles to LaGrange for an 8.00 am start, then ride 80 challenging miles, take a bus back to LaGrange and drive 100 miles home. Our team captain, the very wonderful Jennifer, is frantically trying to organize carpools from Houston to LaGrange. I may also be able to catch a lift with Kevin. If all else fails, Susan will come with me to LaGrange and then drive the car home, and I'll ride the bus back to Houston. What a mess. On the plus side, I now have top quality rain gear -

I spoke too soon -
- when I said that my next ride would start in my garage and end in LaGrange. Mother Nature intervened with heavy rainfall and high winds all through central/east Texas. LaGrange was pummelled, the camp site completely flooded and many of the team tents blown down. On top of that, many sections of the route were flooded, so the MS Society canceled the first day of the event, and now we'll start from LaGrange tomorrow (Sunday) morning.
