That's sounds about right.  I didn't think anybody here on Ridecamp (with a 
few SE exception would remember it )
 It was a champion ride....but was at LBL.  1990 would have been the ROC. and 
this was after that.  It was very cold the day of the ride, but the evening 
before it was warm.

Yep.  I worked that ride, as a pulse taker.  I literally got pneumonia, and was
on antibiotics for a while.  I think it was a year or two later, though, because
I was single.  There's a story about that, one of the reasons Kat is my wife.

The day I went to the doctor and found out I had pneumonia, I had a date with
one of my girlfriends that night.  Not Kat.  I called my date and told her that
I'd come down with pneumonia, and was told to stay home and not go out for a few
days, and could she come to my house instead (I lived about 20 miles away from
her place).  She said, no, that was too far to drive on a weeknight.

So I called Kat, and she said, "OhMyGod!  I'll be right there!!"

The rest, as they say, is history.
