This morning, my friend Tim Reinard (aka "Bepi") of Sunset Gondola boarded a jet bound for the east coast. He packed two pairs of black pants,
two striped shirts, some overnight necessities, and a whole lot of moxie.
As I write this, Tim is on the move, and will be sleeping somewhere in or around Providence, Rhode Island tonight.
On Sunday he'll take part in the first ever GondOlympics - making me and many other west coast gondoliers jealous,
and representing us well, I'm sure.
He's the only rower from this side of the country competing.
Sleep well, Tim.
Then wake up on Sunday, eat your Wheaties, and do us all proud!
