Today is the meet up day for the NUMB Ride, which starts in Holdrege, NE.  There is an optional additional day ride today for those who want to do it, but as they have not provided any information about it (mileage, SAG’s, etc), I’m a  hesitant to do it.  Tonight we camp out out in the yard of a really nice YMCA.  On our own for dinner, just need to be at the 8:00 information meeting at the local Methodist church.

Speaking of the Methodist church, this ride  has been directed by a Methodist minister, Rev. Bill Ritter.  He’s the co-founder of the ride.  This is a United Methodist church mission project to alleviate hunger in the world, but one does not have to be Methodist to participate.

I was thinking how nice it would be to go see a movie at the air conditioned local theater in the afternoon, but they have only one showtime, one movie each day, starting at 7:30.
