Divine Water

It was another hot and windy day through Oklahoma. Most B&B riders
have agreed that these flats are tougher than the mountains. Mountains
have downhills; wind has... more wind.

Today we paused for a water break a little over 3/4 of the way through
the ride. As we all sat in the dry and dusty shade we had found, a
pick-up pulls up with an amazing revelation. About a mile down the
road there was an oasis (an oasis? In the middle of Oklahoma? What did
that mean?) He lead us down to it, going slowly enough for us to draft
him.

The water was cold and refreshing. A life-saving miracle (maybe a
little dramatic, but you get the idea).
