While today’s physical conditions may have been comparable to yesterday’s, my mental state was polar opposite and made it a much more pleasant day. I rode almost 35 miles in about 4 hours, bringing my total mileage up to a crazy 365 miles!!!
Most of the day, after passing through Crawfordsville, and leaving the hills behind for the moment, was spent on Highway 32. This unfortunately and unexpectedly meant most of my day looked like this:
But somehow, I had the spirit with me today, and it moved me forward.
I made it to my hotel in Lebanon, reminiscent of my hotel in Gilman last week, and settled down to an afternoon of internet and digital updating. The desk clerks – ironically they have Middle Eastern accents – were kind enough to do my laundry for me, and I got to walk across the Interstate to get BBQ for dinner. Lucky me!!
