Where I stayed
As the Storton’s currently live at Highfield we also caught up with CJB and Jojo who are both pretty clued up on cycle touring protocol now. When I mentioned that we are only 900 miles from New York, Jojo immediately calculated how many days riding it was (18) and began in depth questioning about the exact route
After that happy start, it was a pretty straightforward day’s ride. No headwind for the first time in ages and some cloud cover – fantastic. We belted out 17 miles to Marshall, a pretty town with lots of historical buildings. About ten miles after than we crossed from Illinois into Indiana but unfortunately the border was not signposted so that we missed the requisite photo. Never mind, that’s still state number 9.
The road was pretty quiet and we actually got a couple of waves today, so we arrived at the KOA Terre Haute feeling pretty pleased. It’s another nice campsite which gives out free cookies on arrival and has a café for breakfast. We’ve got a 65 mile day tomorrow so will need fuelling up. Although it was a shortish day today we both feel really, really tired. Think I’ll go and get an ice cream to wake me up a bit…
PS: That reminds me, the other day we bought some Ben and Jerry’s icecream called 'Phish Food’. I’ve heard people raving about this stuff and never seen the attraction. It was AMAZING however. Mum and Jane you both need to get some immediately. It’s a chocolate addict’s heaven.
Miles Cycled; 41, need to start putting more miles in if we are going to make it to New York
No. of times beeped and sworn at: 1 and it sounded like a friendly honk
