Royal 162...Here I come!

Back to the Basics…
The Royal 162: “Alpine Style”
Friday: Up at 5:15 a.m., drink coffee, and walk Loki, the Man-dog. To school by 7:20 a.m. Get home around 4:00 p.m., pack up bike & gear, (go light). Walk Loki, drink a Big Eddy Imperial Russian Stout (may be two) while watching my favorite TV show, Washington Week with Gwen Ifill. Say, “Good night” to nuclear family. In bed by 9:37 p.m. Saturday, stare at ceiling, and up at 1:00 a.m. Drive the four and half hours to Spring Valley, drink coffee, drink more coffee.  Start race at 7:00 a.m. Race the bike for all of the 162 miles with an eye on the restoration of Honor.  Drink a Summit Pale Ale. Drive home. Sleep.

  1. I have a matter I have to discuss "live" with you. Can you email a phone where I can reach you next week sometime. Good luck with the Almanzo. If you see Cookie can you make sure he is safe and that nothing happens to him?????? His elders worry about the frail, young lad.
    best of luck to you!!
