|Even Lance Armstrong on Steroids Couldn’t Conquer This Killer Single-track…|
At long last I hear, “We can ride on the way down,” Donn’s optimism is slowly fading, his manly resolve weakening. Finally, after an hour of this we get to deal making time. I ask, “If we’re not there at the crest of this mountain in half hour, can we turn around then???” With both of us now breathing hard, slipping with every step on decomposed granite that lodges in my open Keens, he finally relents and amazingly, my own resolve fires up, “There’s sunlight ahead. Let’s go for it- it might be a clearing- 4 more minutes…deal?”

We ALL need to toughen up and NOW! We aren’t going to take this domination lying down, right? No belly up/yellow dog for us, right? Our “pull-together” uphill climb while pushing the weight of the unenlightened (asleep at the wheel…) will see the World free of the fetters of uncontrolled greed backed by the pharmaceutical companies and Big Government.

We jogged because the bike pulled us. We rode enough to get the ‘high’ of the inner “Whee!!!!!!”, some of us flipped over the handlebars, some of us had our fingers go numb braking constantly without release…some of us made it back to the truck faster than the other One, but we won’t say who. At least I remembered to sit on the back of my bike seat to create drag on the back wheel to avoid the flip (if that tells you anything)….
|Polish Flag- Courageous Freedom Fighters|
Anything is possible! I am feeding my will to scale this mountain by focusing on Poland’s military strength… We are desperate and looking for inspiration and succor from Poland, Ithaca, and Lawrence of Arabia’s leadership prowess in the midst of this ancient forest. Tomorrow we have guests arriving from Georgia. We take our time away from Adytum Sanctuary and our lessons when we can get them. By biking this killer mountain, I found an unexpected mentor today.
