day six

June 15th
Twanoh State Park
0 miles

Rained all night.  Definitely a rest day today.  Woke up around 630AM, still pissing rain.  Found a large puddle forming under tent.  Spent awhile digging trenches with a stick around the tent to route water away.  Pissed off.  Decided to go back to sleep.

Woke up around 10:30AM.  Rain stopped.  Dried as much stuff as I could.  Made coffee, organized camp.  Since I wasn't planning on this being a rest day, I didn't have enough food.  Nearest store 3 miles away.  Decided to walk instead, leaving a full day of rest off the bike.  Walked to the store, store had a burger stand.  Had a cheeseburger with my groceries.

Sun coming out.  Tent just about dry, enough to clean off dirt.  Made chow mien again for dinner, with skittles for dessert.  Ready to get out of here.  Got a redbull so I don't have to make coffee in the morning.  Long day to Elma tomorrow, hoping to leave by 6:00AM.  Praying for dry weather.  Nervous/anxious for tomorrow.

*sorry, no pictures today*


  1. Carlon told me about your blog and I am happy I found it! I'm so excited for you still even though you are already well on your way. Thanks for sharing the adventure! - Carly

  2. Great travelogue, Pat. Hope the knee is doing better and weather drier. It's pissing rain here in Bham this morning (Saturday).
