Flying/One Day Left in the Tour

This entry was posted in Racing on by .

I’m at the commuter terminal at San Diego waiting to fly to LAX, then to JFK, then Paris. It is going to take awhile. I get to Paris at 2pm Saturday, so I have a day to mess around. Trudi is driving the 600 km from Grenoble to Paris to get the hotels ready for her team, so she’ll be there on Saturday night sometime. Probably not too early.

It seems like Cadel is in a pretty great position to win the Tour tomorrow. He’s already raced the TT when he rode the Dauphine last month. It seems like he has a ton of confidence, so hopefully that transfers into a great ride.

Okay. I’d better get going to board. Hopefully I’ll have some good stuff to post from Paris.

I had my swiss army knife in my pocket at security. I've had this knife for 20 years. I couldn't believe it.

I went outside and gave the knife to the traffic cop here. He really appreciated it, so it wasn't a complete waste.

    Good job turning a negative into a positive with the pocket knife, we should all strive to do things like that more often.

    The knife deal was likely meant to be. Could be that two years from now that traffic cop is in an accident and needs to cut his seat-belt off to save his life and sure enough Tilford’s knife is in his pocket. Who knows right? Anyway, so much stuff these days is NOT made to the same quality as it used to be years and years ago. But, for sure Swiss Army knifes are still manufactured to their same quality. So another positive is that now you get to go pocket knife shopping! Swiss Army has so many different combinations of knifes these days it will make your head spin. Lucky you!
