This week we have seen tailwinds and crosswinds, but also plenty of headwinds. At first, the wind destroyed our spirits and felt insurmountable. But just like the rain, we have become accustomed to the conditions and grown stronger. Passing through the plains of Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, I have seen countless acres of soy and corn as I battle the relentless wind. Tomorrow is a short day, so we will use it to recover.
The only hitch in tomorrow’s activities is that we have to exterminate the bed bugs that have infested our vans and trailer. Thy will have to be cooked at some extermination facility for six hours while we ride. We will be unsupported, but, again, it is a short 53 miles (94 miles yesterday was long).
Here’s some more pictures you may enjoy.
