Today, Karen and I drove over to Beth's house in Boulder for the pre ride meeting. It was good to see old friends and meet some new ones. (John's wife will be riding with us. Rick brought a friend, etc. More about that later.)
Steve, Bill, Dan, and John reunite after their Natchez Trace Parkway ride in May
Beth and Sandy have organized this ride for us and have obviously put a lot of effort into it, based on our discussion tonight. After having rap, we had a nice cookout to cap off the evening.

Luggage load is at 7:00AM at Beth's house tomorrow morning. We'll ride as a group for 13 miles before hitting the first climb on the way to Estes Park. Now, it is time for a good nights sleep and to get fully hydrated, as we climb to over 9,000 feet tomorrow.
