|Camping among one of the last stands of old forest - Lewis and Clark State Park|
Trip total 440 miles.
Chilly this morning. I didn't want to get out of my sleeping bag. Glad I brougth my sweater!
Another day of mostly just riding. I would have made better time, but I got lost in Centralia looking for the bike shop (it doesn't exist!), and the Adventure Cycling map is wrong! When I finally found what one guy described as the "bike store" (it was a sporting goods store with some bike accessories) the owner looked at the Adventure Cycling map and said "Do you like to climb? That route has a major hill in it." He suggested an alternate route that was shorter, and less hilly that turned out great!
Got to camp late (8:30) and had to set up in the dark ..., but I am here. The park is about 8 miles North of Toledo.
PT Bob, are you reading? Forget the Jambolaga with Cheese I had the other night. Get the Zatarains Original Jambolaya mix and Jimmy Dean's precooked Pork Sasuage and Bacon Crumbles. Will make your nose run and your tummy happy. Serves 5 according to the package, or one cycletourist (2 if your friendly and willing to share). :-) Bob the cat ... you can try it too, ask Val or Malcom.
Today I bought a little keyboard to go with my tablet. I'll have to see how it is going to work out, but sofar I'm pleased.
