Jo Hays Vista - Secret/Revitalement Controle

Eric Keller reports the following, from the Jo Hays Vista secrete controle near mile 480:

Henrik Olsen passed through the overlook at mile ~480 at 6:30AM. He reported stopping multiple times on 192 to warm up.Shortly after he left, Maile said she hoped the rain would hold off for a little bit, but of course the rain started almost immediately after she said that. We don't expect to see the next riders at the overlook until 9 or 10.


  1. "Revitalement" hmmm, interesting word. What is the actual meaning of this word? Kind of easy to guess in this context but can't locate in dictionary or translation sites. Several google hits for at PA randonneur sites. Anyway, I'm sure all riders can use plenty of it right now. Keep going, bon courage folks!

  2. "Tonight
    Periods of rain. Not as cool with lows in the lower 50s. Southeast winds around 10 mph with gusts up to 25 mph. Chance of rain 90 percent."

    Give riders a break for Pete's sake! Go Randos!

  3. Ravitaillement: It's an American-accented franglais spelling of an actual French word for "refueling" or "resupply"
