Well, June is almost over and I have failed to meet my goals for the month. I had hoped to ride 575 miles and only got 243.8. Between no scheduled bike rides, rain, storms, and clean up we just couldn't get a lot of miles in. But that is ok, we need the rain very badly, but could do without the storms.
My training for the 5K has been put on hold for now, for reasons that won't be discussed here. But hopefully I can start back in a month or two.
We will be taking the grands camping next week. Just going to a spot on the lake about 20 miles from home, but they don't care. Next week will be spent swimming, fishing, hiking, and trying to stay cool. Our oldest DGS will be spending the afternoon and night with us today and I'm putting him to work helping get the camper set up, packed, and ready to go. He doesn't know that yet, but he is usually good about helping if he can get something out of it. Last night our youngest DGS spent the night and we baked goodies to take. DH is working and missing all the fun, poor him.
Well, off to play Mario Cart with DGS. Wish I were better, it is a shame when a 4 year old beats you.
Life is good, even when you miss your goals.

Today was our last ride of the Tandem Rally. We opted for the longer 33 mile ride that left from the hotel.
This is our youngest rider. She is 4 and they rode the long rides everyday. She logged over 120 miles in 3 days.
We rode together more today than on most days. The route was not as hilly, but the humidity was killer!
Once again, the scenery was beautiful and the roads were good.
About half way through, we stopped at a store for a short rest. I managed to get a picture of our youngest rider and his trailer (he did wear a helmet, it is in the trailer). Glad I didn't have to pull him up the hills, but they are younger than I am.
Back on the road before our legs get too cold.
And arriving back at the hotel with 33.4 miles, and no mis-adventures today. What a great ride.
A short rest in the room, then off we go for home.
I hope you have enjoyed reading about our wonderful week in TN. I have certainly enjoyed sharing it with everyone. I will try to respond to everyone as quickly as I can. My little netbook that I travel with is a pain to use, so I wait till I get home and have my good lap top to do most of my posting.
Life is good.
