Mrs. Hegde made some amazing Indian food for lunch as we continued to catch some much needed rest and relaxation.
The group hung around all day anticipating the BBQ that would ensue that night. The food and company was amazing, a gathering of all Shane's friends and their families. There was always someone to talk to, someone asking questions about the ride, and tons of new faces to meet. The excitement in peoples' voices and their enthusiasm when they're talking with you really fuels our motivation to keep going, knowing there is so much support behind us, whether we're aware of it or not.
Overall, it was a great day. It's great to meet the other riders' friends and families and to see them in their element.
