I just got home from Day 0, orientation. I went with my friend Jinx who is a roadie and my tentmate this year. There were lines for everything, but it was surprisingly painless.
The safety video made me cry.
I ran into Theresa and Tim from Carnal Nation and not only did they give me a Carnal Nation jersey that I’ll wear out on Day 1, they also were excellent company and gave me a ride home from the Cow Palace aka. The Boonies. We had to leave our bikes parked there. (seperation anxiety!)
I’m blogging from my phone starting now and expect my next update to be tomorrow. Thanks for reading!
