July 14, 2018. Grand
Hotel Misurina. Auronzo di Cadore, Italy
Another day without car trouble and I am still married to
Lorraine, how damned lucky can a guy get. We've made it to Lake
Misurina and the language of Italy is sweet music to my ears.
As for the competition, we've sunk so far down against the
hardened veterans that we blew off almost all the milestones
today and made our own backroad tour of the route.
There's a great back story brewing here among the teams about
mutiny over the inadequate maps and clues (not to mention
universal disdain for German road markings). Too much for this
space. Buy me a beer sometime and I will tell you all about it.
