I arrived in Medford today for the start of Cycle Oregon. Dinner was prime rib steak (no I'm not kidding). It was really nice to see my old elementary school again, which has changed very little. The evening's entertainment was a be-bop jazz band that played foor over an hour: it was easy to see that most folks were not interested, although I found it a good distraction. Tomorrow is a big day. I am uncharacteristicly excited, like a kid on Christmas Eve. I sure hope I can sleep tonight.
