Short post today – wifi isn’t available and cell coverage is poor.
Speaking of poor, or pour, that’s what it did all day. This is my first day of serious rain yet and I was wishing I’d taken today for my day off but c’est la vie.
Today my buddy Adam joins me for a couple of days and we made lodging arrangements so rain or no rain, I needed to get to Redfield.
I did about 30 or so miles before meeting up with Adam. Riding in constant downpour and about 50 degrees this morning brought new exercises in how to tolerate wind or cold. I got myself through it by deciding my new occupation was to make drivers feel warm and cozy in their cars. I know everybody that passed was glad they weren’t me.
After a while it wasn’t too bad and it warmed a little through the day. But I stopped for few pictures because every time I did, I got colder. I met Adam at Noon and we decided to finish up rather than stopping for lunch – as it was only 20+ miles to Redfield, and mostly downhill at that. So we made quick work of those miles and got to our Inn where the hot shower brought life back to my numb hands.
Tough day the but the forecast looks good for tomorrow.
More tomorrow. And I can get some pictures of Adam and me when we’re not such a “drowned rats.”
