Two mega mile riders arrive here.
« on: September 28, 2021, 07:50:25 AM »
Timothy Barlow pulled in From Vancouver, WA last week and Randy T pulled in last night from Keene, NH. They will stay here until the GRIT Rally that starts Friday.

Randy T Rocon fame for going coast to coast on one. Amazing! Also, he has many long distance awards. A number of years we are sitting here in the kitchen at the Oleo Ranch when he said only 500 miles to go and I'll have 100K on the Quota. I said, "lets go." So we run all around rural roads here in the piney woods of East Texas until we got back here with all 9's on the odometer.

Timothy Barlow 4 time Four Corners tour rider Five time 3 Three Flags finisher. Ha he asked me if I had any bike washing supplies. I told him I had the same ones that he used two years ago and they were in the same spot.

Enjoyable visiting with old friends,
Tex

It has been many years since I saw Timothy and a few years since I saw Randy. Please give them both my regards.

What is Timothy riding these days?

Thanks,
John Henry

Go ahead on, brothers. My physician pulled the pin on me earlier today.   Good fortune,  R3~

The most amazing part of this story is that you had bike washing supplies on hand! :laugh:

Richard Thibideau should be showing up shortly.  He's no slouch either in the mileage department.  :boozing:

He was at the Kentucky rally, of course.  :smiley:

Usually Ken has just ran out so that must have been hidden under the still.
Edit: I should clarify, the still is only to make cleaning fluid
