Sep. 20, Day 69: A Slow Day

With wind, rain, and cold in the mix, we weren’t eager to leave the Days Inn, so we checked out around noon. We bought some supplies at the grocery store and ran around town to buy some hats and gloves. We left around 1 pm and had hopes of going 68 miles to Hampton. 

After about 20 miles going into the wind at 7 mph, we knew we weren’t going to make it that far. It was getting into the late afternoon and we couldn’t keep up a fast enough pace.

We decided to call it quits after 30 miles and camped at Chickahominy Reservoir just past Riley, Oregon.

It was chilly and windy when we got in and we all set about finding fuel for a fire. We spent the night sitting around the fire cooking dinner and shooting the breeze. 

It wasn’t the pedaling day we were hoping for, but we did get treated to a brilliant sunset.
