David great reading about this trip and I am so happy to see that Francine makes work to keep up and take pictured now. I remember the ride report from your first ride
together. I didn't know you guys then but I read it and thought it was excellent.
BTW as far as the first aid end of the situation there are not many people around that anyone would be better off with as a riding partner than you. I am also sure LDF is no slouch on the first aid front.
Can't wait to read the rest
