3.5 weeks until a terrible miserable awesome day

In 3 and a half weeks, I am making the trip back down to Crater Lake National Park, where I am going to ride my bike around the rim road. It is going to be hot, difficult, miserable, tiring, sweaty and every other pain-filled adjective to describe a terrible time. But, I am looking forward to it. I may have to stop, and I am sure that I am going to slow Dan down, but, it is what it is. Once I have completed it, I know I will feel great about it. And it's a stepping stone. Maybe next year I will be ready to do the Portland to Astoria ride, or maybe the STP (Seattle to Portland).
