    The team at a gas station . . . somewhere, waiting on Claudio the cameraman and the chase truck to catch up. They never showed, so we moved on.

    People tell me that I tend to speed up when I hit gravel.

    Remnants of Imelda made for a wet morning getting to Galena. We faired better than my brother in Texas, who had eight inches of water in his house for the second time in two years.

    Riding in the wet. It was . . . wet. You know how it is.

    The Grotto in Dickeyville. My reaction: “Huh.” This was just before @ZLTFUL had a little “incident” on the 640. All I’ll say about it is that as he slid past me knocking off the bar end mirrors of his and my bike, all I could think was, “Huh.” It all happened too fast to even be scared about it. I guess it’s time to follow the first rule of Italian driving:
