Let Them Eat Cake
We spent the night in Alpine, Texas, hosted by a lovely woman named Liz. She invited us into her colorful home, and fed us a huge spaghetti dinner with a giant cake to boot! Moreover, her and her boyfriend were absolutely hysterical to talk and listen to. My only regret is being this close to Big Bend National Park and not seeing it.
Between 7 people, we were only able to finish a quarter of it, so she gave it to us for the road. I’m planning on dividing the remaining three quarters up so each of the 3 cyclists gets a remaining quarter… I don’t do enough to justify that sort of consumption.
She got up early this morning with us and rode about 20 miles into Marathon, Texas, where I’m typing this from.
Liz is also hooking us up with a place to say in Sanderson, Texas tonight. If it’s anything like her place in Alpine, it’ll be awesome. Thanks Liz, for the hospitality!
Send the guys some encouragement… they’re going to need it to finish the monstrosity of the cake.
