Hello, one more message from Paul here in Lima. Just 2 things...firstly I forgot to say in my earlier message that we should say hello to Cricket. Hope she's going well...hope she had a good day today and I'm sorry we couldn't...we didn't have the courage to come out with her. We needed our day's rest...we feel a lot better for it but I hope she's done well and tell her we're going to keep riding so if she needs more company we're just always coming along.
Secondly, we've just seen Pete Basinger who apparently set off from Banff, he didn't say when, and who came over the pass today into Lima and said that the mud had dried an awful lot compared to how it had been yesterday. He saw all our footprints and everything but could ride most of it, sat down for a bit and I think he rode most of it, over the pass anyway. So if anybody is following, maybe things have improved a bit and maybe that will give you some encouragement. We're hoping the same effect has happened on the road down south out of Lima and thereafter so we can actually do some cycling tomorrow.
So that's it for now...I've just realised that Lima where Paddington Bear might live is also just away from another famous English children's television character - Dillon - from the Magic Roundabout...and magic roundabout is something I feel I'm on at the moment. We're all heading off early, me, Per, Stephen and Trevor, at least as far as Mack's Inn tomorrow, further if we can. Bye
