The Lord is paving the way!

Wow, all I can say is that things are happening as if the Red Sea is parting to clear a path for me.

Yesterday I woke up to an email from the Hertford Theater in Hertford, UK that a ticket to the screening of "His Last Vow" on Oct. 5 with Martin Freeman and Amanda Abbington had become available.  Now, I have to think that I was well down that waiting list because that event sold out almost instantly, and I didn't put my name on the waiting list for a couple of days.  So, I had written them an email about my story and that I was doing the Prince's Trust ride in the morning of Oct. 5, and that I had a bicycle with me... I just think I must have gotten bumped up the list out of pity.  Whatever works!  I called them, paid for the ticket, and I am in.

Then comes the mad scramble of how am I supposed to get from Windsor Castle to Hertford?  I had been emailing with a cab company in the Windsor area and was quoted a price of £75 - but that's pretty pricey, yet the only option I have to get there by 1:00.  And a generous person has stepped up with the funds to take the cab.  Seriously!  Now, this means getting a little earlier start on the ride so that I can be certain to complete it in a timely fashion.  

Unless Freeman/Abbington take pity on a lone touring cyclist and invite me to their home for the night in Hertfordshire, I think I will just take the evening/night train back up to Scotland from Hertford and arrive in Edinburgh first thing in the morning.  Good thing is that it's night and I can sleep on the train.  Perhaps my body can start adjusting to the time change faster.  I'll be plenty knackered, that's for sure.
