Day 26


Orion, IL

Folks rolled out of camp together today, all in BTUSFMS jerseys… except me. Another solo day! 75mi of not-skillet-flat terrain with a mix of winds and hotness. Map and signage confusion caused a few casualties to the Extra Miles Gremlins. Again though, we find that “getting lost” really just means “finding cool things” like downtown Kewanee and a fun tree growing inside a silo. 

Orion (pronounced “OR-eeun” for some reason… seriously everyone’s in on it) was darn hot upon arrrival. Mitigated by our outstanding hosts at the Methodist church. A/C, blowup mattresses, and a hot meal combine into the height of luxury. 

Rose: gracious hosts and wonderful facilities 

Thorn: sweating out the first segment wasn’t ideal
