So as we have done for five previous Anchor House rides, Steve and I have had an amazing
time together. We are quite the pair, like an old married couple but that is a good thing. Steve
always gets the bed near the bathroom (this is easy for me since my wife, Laura, also needs the
same place when we travel). We have the tunes playing each night and the mornings are just a
very efficient routine.

During the rides we simply catch up on life, ride hard and help each other have a great time. It is
truly special being with Steve once a year for this week. I hope that he continues doing it with
me although each year he threatens that he is not returning. I know there will come a day when
he does not ride and that will be a sad day for me. Here is to another year to riding with Steve.
