Henri and I love bacon egg mcmuffins and thought it would be an excellent addition to his daily caloric intake on the Bruce. So from time to time, I zip into a town & pick one up, or we have one en route to the trailhead at the start of the day.
Here's the thing, a bacon egg mcmuffin is not a bacon egg mcmuffin is not a bacon egg mcmuffin. They're all made different. Timmys - yummy. But have you noticed it's a bit chewy? I think the stellar performer comes from McDonalds, as per our Bruce mcTesting.
That was until today. With an 8:04 a.m. start on day 12, and feeling another smoker coming on, I thought I'd better treat him to some intense and dense calories early on in the day. I mean the guy is ripping through aid stations in about four minutes, not the usual ten. Now, Kinga is with him and y'all probably know what that means....quick, quick, quick and most efficient!
Mind you, our new sore/stiff knee/quad theory, as shared by Lee Anne this morning, is that the sore knee syndrome starts around 40 k. Yup - yesterday, he slowed at 40k. So I'm thinking he's going to need most calories early on as this is when he's going the fastest.
So - my point is - I"ve have found THE bacon egg mcmuffin. It just melted in my mouth moments ago - and the pieces I fed into Henri's mouth while he practically jogged through this aid station were met with a smile of sincere satisfaction. Where did I buy this sandwich of delight? The four corner stop on Hwy 89 on the way to dirty girls - you know, where Champ Burger is. I think the actual donut stop is Pete's Deli/Donuts or something like that.
