Good news on the knee front. It feels a lot better than it did just 24 hours ago. The swelling has come down significantly and it isn't as stiff. It is still a little sore but I like the direction it is headed. I am going to head to the gym tonight to do some easy spinning on the stationary bike to get a real picture of where it is. I need it to be 100% by Friday morning when the Make-A-Wish 300 miles in 3 days across Michigan starts. The good thing is that the ride doesn't have a lot of hills on it. It looks like 1400 ft of elevation gain on the first day and most of that is within the first 30-40 miles. As long as the knee holds up for those uphills I should be able to survive the rest of it. At least I hope I do. Of course I am going nowhere if I don't get packed tonight. I need to triple check my list so that I don't forget anything. It isn't easy to reduce everything you need (including sleeping bag and mat to sleep on) down to one bag weighing 25 lbs or less.
