Postcards from the Road
One of many things we learned during the HOS ride is that the Crew is much too busy to successfully blog from the road. Randy, of course, is riding which brings us to the part of the crew that stays in one place. That's me, Leo, and Elaine. Our jobs are to keep you informed of what is going on as Randy and his Road Crew make their way across the country.
Basically, here's how it's supposed to work: 1) Crew comes off shift and texts/calls/emails us with notes about cool/bizarre/normal things that happened that shift. 2) We post to the blog (cleaning up spelling and cussing). 3) You read the blog and perhaps even post comments we can send back to be read to Randy as he rides along.
During this coming weekend's training ride on the Eastern Shore we're going to be practicing. The Road Crew will be practicing hand-offs, driving behind Randy in the dark, and calling/texting in at the end of each shift. Here at the commo shack, we'll be posting any news that's fit to blog (and we have not yet determined what our standards will be - they may be terribly low). Wish us luck!
