No telling how many of these there might be, but again I can’t believe I forgot this in the original write up…
Quote of the Day: in the hills out behind Vacaville, there was a flock of turkeys (wild?) out in a field. I pointed them out to the now quite famous David H., with whom I was riding at the time, and he responded ‘they’re probably saying “hey, look at the turkeys” ‘.
Later, a solo turkey challenged me to a game of chicken. I won. No drumsticks were harmed in the encounter.
updated to properly attribute the quote… This from a man who was riding a tandem solo so that he wouldn’t ride too fast.

I think the whole family is simply amazing.
