Now don't be getting a big head, Ohio. You're no Colorado - not yet anyways. You've got three days to prove yourself; are you up to it? Can you improve on today? Maybe a strong tailwind? A big tractor to follow, perhaps? Rumor has it New York and Vermont are going to be way prettier. I think some of my riding friends have their heads in the clouds, dreaming of the days they'll be out of Ohio and onto the Atlantic. Maybe you could bring them back with a great lunch place? The Dish in Abeline, KS is in first place right now, but I think you've got what it takes to snatch that prize. Today you showed us that your people are among the nicest. JL gave us surprise water and gatorade 90 miles in, at the exact place we were losing interest in the ride. That was very nice of him, I can tell he's one of your own, Ohio. He also took us out for ice cream at the Farmhouse, and it was delicious. That's plus one; you're stock has been rising all day.
Even your employees are nice and helpful Ohio. I've never had a faster or easier experience at the BMV than I did renewing my license today. If it wasn't for that pesky red-eye reduction flash that makes me close my eyes half-way every time, it would have been a perfect trip to a government office. Way to go, Ohio.
I have high hopes for the next three days, Ohio. Please don't let me down. I've missed you dearly and our reunion has been better than I had ever dreamed it would be.
