Today, we made the ride from Jefferson City to Hermann. Well, some of us made the ride. I made the 60 miles in sub 30 degree temperatures, in snow, mud, and wind. My other half hitchhiked the second half of the trip in his Pjs (he forgot pants!). Along the way, I stumbled upon a wild ram and a bald eagle. The rest of the path was devoid of any life: spooky and beautiful. I don’t think I can ever forget today’s ride: the hardest ride of my life.
