TAILWINDS!!! Such a spirit-lifter. Worked out pretty hard for most of the day, after getting out of camp a little late… zipping along at 18mph instead of 11mph is so very enjoyable. Perhaps one of the best days in the bike, ever.
Stopped in Wenona, IL for a marshmallow Coke, found more grain elevators, and had a fun downhill into town. Some fishermen on the Illinois River gave us catfish off the line… Caleb filleted and Eric grilled for a delicious treat! Scooby and the gang rolled by our campsite too (Shannon was quick on the shot!).
Many of our group ended up at a local watering hole for beers and pool. Second swingset hammock hang in a row.
Rose: amazing riding & fresh catfish
Thorn: town pool and showers were ‘meh’
