Day 4: Indio, CA to Blythe, CA

Day 4: Indio, CA to Blythe, CA by xctom2012 at Garmin Connect - Details

  Tom made it the whole way thru the sizzling desert!  He is a bit pooped but hanging in there.  He's pretty good at tolerating heat, probably from all those years of flying gliders in the desert.  Don't panic, like I did,  at the heart rate stats from the Garmin link - that is when he adjusted the belt around his chest that holds the Garmin in place.  Whew.
  He's off already on the road with the group at 6:45 AM.  They grind it out thru more desert then start pounding uphill to Prescott, AZ where it will be cooler, but on the other hand, it is also uphill!  Oh my.
  Tom and I are so enjoying the motivational and inspirational cards from his Boeing friends each day.  We were both overwhelmed with the thoughtfulness.  We so appreciate everyone's interest and support.  - Michele

I wondered about the heartrate spikes. Thanks for the clarification!
