Day 3 – Paul’s

Posted by thatwindguy on August 4, 2006

Finally got the Creamy!  65 miles and there it was in Wells River just 1 mile from our destination.

Visited Lake Morey in Fairlee and cooled off in the water and shade. A little trip down memory lane for me. I spent my 16th summer at the now defunct Rutledge Inn and Cottages working as a dishwasher and sailing/swimming instructor.

First “crash” occurred today when John, who was closely drafting me (overlapping wheels) lost his balance and the guard rail. No serious damage to the bike or John, but he sure made a large bang on the metal rail. We all whipped around to see if was OK. We had often discussed our concerns of hitting one of these because they are quite low relative to the bikes and you could go over easily. The posts that hold the rail are made from thin-wall I-beams and they look very menacing.

    Hey Paul: I notice that t-shirt as yours sitting in front of multiple plates of pancakes, eggs, etc etc…..That’s quite a feats but I bet you need it. Missing the carpooling stories this week but I’m sure I’ll get an earful next week. Cheers, Anna

    Hey John,

    This kind of incident (or perhaps the word is accident) seems to run in our family. Did you know what Buffy said when driving a car for the first time? ” Uh Oh, here comes a guard rail…”

    Hope all is well,
    Emmy

    Ps: my father, Charles, is here and he says hi.
