A month after the end of our fleche, I've stumbled across some phone messages some friends left for us mid-ride. Calls from our buddies Mike D, Jerry and Byron from Team NC/DC failed to ring through for several reasons:
- few cell towers along our route in hilly, rural Virginia
- I killed my phone's battery pretty early by using it as a camera
- and finally, I lost said cell phone in a Sheetz parking lot on the way home.
I wish my phone would have worked and we could have heard their messages of support. In any case, a belated "Thanks!" to our friends who, in the middle of their own fleche attempt, were thinking of us as we fought through ours.
