Bad Weather Rolls In....

Today we were supposed to ride 100 miles into Berea, Kentucky amd tomorrow was supposed to be our day off. But when we woke up bright and early for breakfast, we realized it was raining outside pretty steadily. We checked the local forecast, which predicted rain and thunderstorms into the late afternoon. We all decided the best game plan would be to rest today instead of tomorrow, and begin riding again tomorrow morning since it was supposed to be sunny with a high of 87. Our original itinerary grants us a full day of rest every 10th day, for a total of 5 days of rest for the entire trip. We basically just swapped today's schedule for tomorrow. I think in the long run it will help us all out as we continue to recover from the mountians of Virginia and the hills of Kentucky.

The plan worked out very well. I was able to get to the local hospital to get checked out by a docttor. I was given two prescriptions for an anti-inflammatory and a muscle relaxer. The pills will help as we ride our way westward out of the mountians and hills, and into the flat lands of the mid-west.

I spent the day relaxing, napping, and snacking, but I'm definately ready to ride tomorrow!

Happy Father's Day!
