First long, hot, day soloing into headwinds… feeling lively though! Woke up late after the party ran late (figures). Chugged away for the 90mi at a steady pace. Not really digging some of the long straight stretches of road, but it’s some kind of mental challenge. Crossed into Indiana.
Nice campsite: first of the “touring friendly” mid-west stops. Laundry, leftovers, and kitchen available! Hung out all night under the patio during some intense wind without much trouble.
Rose: nice facilities and laundry
Thorn: heat and wind make a tough combo
