Mr. Giraldo, Riding Day7

Mr. Giraldo Day7 SPOT Map

I and other BROL posters on this thread give Mr. Giraldo his PROPS for a GREAT riding day. I do not know exactly how many miles he covered; but, he rode further today than he has in previous days.  The map above from the SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger™ shows the distance he rode.

Mr. Giraldo began his riding day at 8:08 a.m PDT and continued through 5:49 p.m. It appears he was headed for Kirkwood [the next place to stop on Hwy 88], but turned around and returned to the Kit Carson Campground [right].  All-in-all, a GREAT riding day!

We do not have photographs from yesterday and I’m not expecting pictures today, in that Mr. Giraldo is not likely to have Internet access in the campground. Maybe tomorrow we will get 3 days of pictures.
