quick update from oudenaarde. i made it yesterday morning...with no bags. bummer. they're supposed to show up today. my tracking shows their in brussels this morning. our mechanic gregory babysit us for the day as brian and i learned how to work the gread cutting machine at the grocery store.
did an hour ride yesterday on one of brian's bikes. we rode the koppenburg then proceeded to get lost for a bit before finding our way back. it was about 35 degrees and pissing rain. grocery shopping is done. waiting around for last night's snow to melt before we do our training. i don't think it's gonna melt today though.
