Every day of this journey begins with the hope that everything will go as planned. That we will find Moody Road, that the airport will deliver the cargo on time, that no bikes will need repair. Yet every day something unexpected happens and we have to deal with it. That's what makes doing something like this so special and fun. That said, it would be nice if once, just once, everything went as we expected it to. Well today was the day (at least as close as we've come so far.)
The plan for today was to get up early and starting riding by 7:00 am so we could finish the ride before Ashland hit 102 degrees. We would find a local place to eat then set up camp and enjoy the afternoon. Well, as you will see below, that's pretty much what happened! Only took 21 days. "Put a monkey to a typewriter and it's bound to spell a word."
It was also nice to see some changes in the scenery. There were curves in the road and we saw some trees!
I even had a chance to shoot a video! Be kind, it was a single take situation.
We made it to Ashland by 12:30 and the temperature was 93 degrees. Hot but with no headwind like yesterday. We grabbed lunch ad Maggies cafe. Maggie also had Indian Tacos (tostadas to me) that looked very similar to the Oprah recognized version we had yesterday. Hmmmm
All in all a terrific day that came off nearly as planned. We are off into the vast no where tomorrow. There is nothing near where our 50-70 range is except a post office. We may be in their parking lot but we'll figure it out.
