2003 Tour Departure

  • 4:45 pm – Tour van departs Milwaukee
  • 5:00 pm – Not even out of Milwaukee, the van encounters a most untimely traffic jam.
  • 5:51 pm – Thacher & Roman, dodging semi-trucks and BMWs moving at .03 miles per hour, braved the deadly freeway on foot to answer the call of Nature
  • 6:28 pm – Traffic finally clears up and we move on at acceptable velocity.
  • 7:28 pm – Cecilio lights a stick of rosemary incense, which is promptly thrown out by Roman on account of its repulsive, soapy odor.
  • We drive all through the night, talking about gerbils and myriad equally interesting and intelligent topics
