Meanwhile, back at the 'ranch' I continued organizing the trailer for the insertion of the VW on Monday, and actually found some more space in our coach basement through storage bin for the pressure washer and new battery charger I bought when my hardwired charger/converter crapped out a couple of weeks ago. Now I will only have the one large box that holds the Winegard Carryout G2 satellite dish. In addition, I will not be carrying around my grandson's mountain bike anymore as it is now in his permanent possession here in Riverside. Sooooo, I am enjoying a luxury of extra space in the trailer once again.
Around 1:30 I decided to take one more bike ride around my 10 mile loop, so I was able to climb to top of Mt. Rubidoux and drink in the amazing view yet one more time. As I headed out I was determined not to push it, but just ride at a seemingly leisurely pace, which is what I did, but somehow I arrived back home in just over 49 minutes.....2 minutes faster than my fastest prior time. I'm mystified about that, because I think I hit every red light on University......nonetheless, it was nice that my last ride didn't seem that hard, but I apparently was pushing 'taller' gears than usual.
TLE was home by 3:30, and by 4:15 we were back in the car headed for the wedding venue in Rancho Cucamonga (Central Park) for the rehearsal at 5. We arrived at exactly 5, and by 5:20 we were in rehearsal mode. We did a walk through about 5 times to get the order and timing right, and by 6:20 we were ready for the rehearsal dinner at the local 'Old Spaghetti Factory'.
