5/5/10, Gem Village, CO - We started the day off with a doozy of a hill, but after reaching the top is was smooth sailing.
Right after breaking camp, Bill and Doc started their assault on Yellowjacket hill. We gained a good thousand feet in three miles, and it was nearly as tough as the battles to take Pork Chop Hill or Hamburger Hill. But the lads were game and the hill was defeated at last.
Halfway up, I had an unexpected visit from Lu Ann Baker, who put on the womenís driving clinic. We had a cup of coffee and a nice chat together. Before she drove off, she left me with some nice gifts. Itís funny, but when the trip is finally over, it will be the faces of those I met, that I will remember the most!
