Pretty pleased that I broke the 1000th place mark. Ended up 3rd in Erie, and 41st in Pennsylvania. Not too bad! As there are a few months left in the year, I have the potential for raising my ranks for the 'all year' category. bicycling national_bike_challenge Update on phone found on September 29http://ghofulpo.com/james/index.php/201710050742/Update_on_phone_found_on_September_29http://ghofulpo.com/james/index.php/201710050742/Update_on_phone_found_on_September_29Thu, 05 Oct 2017 07:42:00 -0500September 29 - Samsung S3 Prepaid - Near Hammermill.
