Just ride, baby

Truth be told, this was a fairly uneventful day.

I got a late start because I took the time to write up the previous day’s post during breakfast (Texas waffle out of the Super8 waffle maker).

That would be a challenge since this day was to be 800+ miles anyway.

Yeesh.

The good news is that there wasn’t a drop of rain in the forecast. The bad news is that there was a steady strong wind coming from the west and I would be doing battle with it all day.
