Cut my hair today, no mirror, and plenty of sweat. Worked out alright though I think. The power went out on my pad today, while I was sleeping. It gets hot in those tents real quick and fast with no cool air flowing. Not quite as bad as the CHUs got last time with no power, but that makes sense considering tents are not big steel boxes.
I’ve planned my Lap Around America ride up to San Diego so far. The route takes me through Shiner, TX (mmm beer), out west to Ft. Davis (haven’t been there since I was a young whipersnapper), through Sierra Vista, AZ (assuming my sister and brother-in-law still live out there), up to the Grand Canyon, across into Las Vegas, and then back down to San Diego. From there I plan on riding up the length of the Pacific Coast, though I’ve not decided where exactly to go. A few people are helping me with that, so I don’t miss anything cool on the way. I’ll shoot across the northern border, stopping to visit folks in the Great Lakes area before making my way to the east coast and riding back down towards some of my favorite roads in eastern TN, northern GA, and North Carolina. Having been across the Gulf Coast at least 300 times, I’ll find some other way to get from the fun twisty bits out east back to Texas. Should be fun.
