(0/1413 miles) Conrad sent another e-mail. He mailed 2 books, 3 maps and 4 films to Florida today. "Everything is going splendidly." He set up the voice-mail capability on his mobile phone. He ordered 3 replacement tyres. The Big Sky Brewing Company gave him a Moose Drool T-shirt. He met lots of fantastic people in Missoula and at the Adventure Cycling HQ.

Friday, 3 September 1999 Missoula, MT.
(0/1413 miles) Conrad was given a mobile phone today by Barbara McLeod from Cable & Wireless. He sent an e-mail.

Thursday, 2 September 1999 Missoula, MT.
(0/1413 miles) Received an e-mail fom Conrad this morning and a phone call to Tring in the evening. He corrected our erroneous assumptions about his travel over the last few days. The temperatures have dropped dramatically and last night was close to freezing. He has reports of snow in the mountains - sounds like fun to come! However the drop in temperatures over the last few days suits him much better - so much so that he rode the 7 mile Lolo pass to 5,235ft twice!!! John & Carol are in Tring and saw Conrad's photographs. Not one of Conrad in America!! We will scan a selection of these pictures and will add them to this web site.

(50/1413 miles) Received Conrad's parcel which he sent to Florida - it arrived in Tring today after being mailed on the 9th August from Arcata, California. Margaret is getting the films developed today.
