But I am just a pilgrim on this road, boys
Until I see you fare thee well

Precious Moments 202K

Last Saturday, I rode the Precious Moments 202K permanent with Tamara Mitchell and Dan Pfaff. This was the inaugural ride for Precious Moments. The weather was great with little wind and a high temperature of 76 degrees. There were plenty of hills and the usual Ozark dogs. There was very little traffic the entire route. While we had to get up early to drive to Carthage, it was worth it because the biggest hills are on the east end of the route. We were glad to get them out of the way before we were tired at the end of the ride. R-12 tally:
Tamara-7 months
Dan-3 months
Ralph-3 months
