In the Ozarks and on to Jefferson City
Got some updates and pictures from the crew:
From Pablo: No the neck problem isn't bad. Playing his cards for some sympathy. Seem to be riding stronger when he knows he will get to rest. Road very strong last half hour to check point 30.
From Dennis: Paul is taking a 3 hour break in Weaubleau, MO
He is riding strong but gets a little testy when we force him to drink. The neck brace is working for now but we are getting another setup ready just in case. It is hot. We will make it.
From John: Hey everyone
Well we almost have one week in. (Noon time to be exact). We are headed to Jefferson City, MO as I write this. We have 31 out of 53 check points in. That's 1911 miles with 1105 left. Everyone we run into, officials, check point people, other teams are in awe of Pauls current pace and determination. Crew machanic Pablo has rigged a niffty contraption to support his head up. Long way to go yet, but Pauls' and the crews' spirits are high. Have everyone keep sending emails out to him, he loves to have us read them to him.
