Well, we are currently underneath some railroad tracks. This is home for the night!
Today was a bit of a grind. We had headwind for basically the entire day but thankfully we were still able to get in over 100 miles. My butt is sore. I am thinking of replacing my bike seat with a beach cruiser seat or some Lazy Boy product. The idea seems really good to me right now, haha.
Nothing particular exciting today, but I will give you some events that occurred. This is what we saw today...
We are officially on the transamerica bike route, and we saw roughly 10 bicycle tourists on the road today. This is the most we have seen in a single day by far, kinda cool. We didn't stay long to chat further than the typical questions (where are you from? Where is your final destination? Miles in a day? Etc) since we are under a bit of a time crunch, but still really cool to see so many people doing a similar trip.
Bugs decided to try attacking me again. They went kamikaze style today. I had two bees hit my right cheek(face) and another bug that was either a bee or grasshopper stick to my lip. Haha it woke me up to say the least.
Also, I have some big news to share. It's official! I have named the bike. It was a delicate process but his name has grown on me.

Haha i actually didnt make up a lot of that. It is kind of ridiculous but very necessary on a trek like this.

I hear my brother snoring, and I think it's about time for me to do the same.
