Instead, I'll keep checking the Copper Triangle site to see if they've updated their list of registrants, visiting mybicycleroutes.com to re-read the BTC summary, and see if he's posted a summary of CRMBT'09, and trying to figure out how many layers it takes to stay warm when you camp at 10,000 feet in June. Maybe I'll pull out American Flyers and live vicariously through Kevin Costner.
