After that it was ghost shifting and jumping and we couldn't get it to work so he turned back.

The rest of us went on to our snack break where I had a flat. Put my spare tube in and it went flat a few miles up the road. It leaked at the seam near the stem. It's the second tube I've had separate recently.
After that no issues except the heat. I drank 6 large bottles plus a 20oz soda and was 5 pounds light when I got home.

The good news is my breathing has been better lately and I haven't used the Albuterol in more than a week.
Ick. I had that level of chain drop/suck once so bad I had to get picked up by a shop and they had to PULL THE CRANK to fix it.
