Arvid continues to work on improving his mineral imbalance and dehydration and heat exhaustion. This imbalance has caused severe cramping making it impossible to ride at times. He has been working very hard in extreme heat and terrain. His stomach issues are also nowhere near resolved.
We have decided to take a hotel for the night and make a final decision tomorrow morning.
RAAM has two intermediate ‘soft’ cut-off times. With this rest we will not meet those times. With our successful history with RAAM, there is some flexibility, but absolutely no flexibility on the final arrival time in Annapolis. RAAM is suggesting (and we agree) that we rest and make a final decision in the morning.
We appreciate your prayers. This is not easy.
