We arrive at the Chevron station at the 15 and 138 and sure enough we are the last group to arrive, even though we left as group two so we really did get lost. I wet down the Kool Vest again for the trip into Orange County and prepare for the 90+ degree heat.
Handled the heat much better on this ride, maybe I'm learning. When it's over 90 deg. while riding a motorcycle you can really build up body heat to a rather dangerous level. Even our esteemed president's very experienced motorcycling wife suffered elements of heat exhaustion due to lack of fluids possibly, on a previous ride, so it can happen to anyone. I brought along some Gatorade that I froze so it would be cold on the road plus made sure to drink more fluids, watered down my jacket and also used the Kool Vest to keep body temperature from escalating. Seems to have worked.
You want photos, try this link to Susan Palaoro's photo album it is better than I could ever take since she is able to snap on the road shots.
