Well, I made it! It is beautiful here! I will take some pictures and post them later, but I am not in Mississippi anymore, Toto!
The remaining flight was pretty uneventful except that I had an unexpected stop in Denver. I found out we would be stopping in Denver while in Chicago, so since I had just eaten breakfast, I decided I would eat lunch in Denver. Well, I did not realize that they don't let you off the plane in Denver, so I went from 8:30 to 10:00pm without eating anything but peanuts and popcorn! I was starving by the time I got to eat!
Once I arrived at the motel (2 hr shuttle ride dropping off others in Seattle) it was easy to pick out other Pactour riders. The first person I met was this neat guy - Bob Lewis from Arizona. He and I waited around to see if anyone else had not eaten. I finally got to meet Cynthia, Cov, Jenae, and Susan as well as several others as we all congregated in the lobby. At 8 Pacific time we walked to the Irishman. I was hoping for shepherds pie, but they did not have it, so I ate chicken parmesian. I could have eaten anything at that point though.
So it is almost time for me to put my bike together - more later!
