Today was our final day of riding. Many riders were making bus and travel connections so they were in a hurry to get to the end. Today had a different feel from the other days because riders were not spending as much time in the towns and stops. Our streak of great weather continued with temperatures in high 50’s in the morning with the low 80’s by afternoon. Our “team” Shelly, Jens, Dave, Pat & Mark rode the entire 463 mile route.
The man in this photo ordered a king size air mattress delivered to him on the route after his wife complained about their sleeping pad. As you can see he was having quite a bit of difficulty fitting a king size mattress in a small tent.
We used a service that moved our luggage and set up a tent for us each night. All of the tents were the same and there was a number attached to the outside of the tent to identify your tent. It was important to remember the location of your tent during a late night bathroom run. The tents were set up in the same order every day so we got to know our “neighbors”.
