Hi, this is Jill Homer, calling from Elkford. Uh, was going to stay in the campground but, uh, it started raining and I got a hotel. Now there's some thunder, so I'm kinda glad I did that! But, umm, had a good first day. Just rode pretty easy, no problems. But, I did see a bear. I think it was a black bear, but it was mostly just a big black butt running off into the woods. That was about the most exciting thing that happened. But, had a good day, looking forward to heading back out tomorrow. It's been beautiful... so... yeah... talk to you later. Bye!
Its Blaine Nester calling from Elkford, B.C. at 8 pm. Had a lot of fun today and met a lot of nice people. I'm feeling good - heading out early for the Flathead - looking forward to that section. Will phone again when I get down into Montana.

Hi, this is Rick calling in from Banff, the evening before the start of the TD. I just got back from the prerace BBQ that the ski shop hosted for us. The burgers were great! I met a lot of other racers and everybody has just been so cool. Everything is going just fine with me physically and my bike is running great. The only problem is, I have tooooooo much gear. Everybody else is really super light and they're all making fun of me and my pack mule. I had a couple of short warm up rides on the first section yesterday and today. These Florida lungs aren't used to this mile high altitude yet but they'll come around. I'll be slow but steady. They're forecasting rain for tomorrow but I hope it holds off until later in the day to give us a good start. Welp, going to bed now and getting a good night sleep. I'll call in again later.
