There is a place close to heaven. Its name is Braum’s Ice Cream. It’s better than DQ. I know, it’s hard to believe. But, it’s true. They have the best yogurt with Butterfinger crumbs mixed in. Yummy! It also makes a great recovery snack.

One of the staffers, Mack, had to return home due to an ill family member. Mack is amazing and SAGs the group every mile. I will truly miss him. Rick is one of the mechanics on the trip. He and I are both Texas proud. He has also left the tour for a few days due to work obligations. (He will return the day I leave.)

Some topics I purposefully do not blog about. Call me superstious, but there is one topic I will not address until after the trip. More to come on this…

Roy has once again worked his magic and has arranged for complimentary ice cream at the Applebee restaurants- for the group, two nights in a row. He also has the massage therapist picking us up at the hotel, driving us to her studio then returning us back after our massages. Who knows what else will be in store for our much needed rest day. All you have to do is ask. Anything this possible.

As we travel further from LA, we seem to be reaching rock star status. The manager of Applebee’s had us all sign a menu and took our picture. He will frame the menu and the picture is to hang in the restaurant.

Yea, and right now... starts the rest day!
