Sep 5, Pollock, SD, Labor Day…natch

Don’t take N. Dakota for granted…she gives and she takes away. Knew I was in for it when I hit the road and couldn’t get out of the granny gear. BIG WIND on the nose. Averaged 7 mph today, so plans changed and I only made half my planned route – 35 mi. today – and I feel like I’ve been drug here behind a car, not ridden here. Plus side, I’m in a neat BnB – redone old train station. Land is getting a bit flatter, but of course they run the road over every hill they have..but I digress. Hopefully winds will abate a bit tomorrow. Pic is of an interesting spot along the road-kind of sums up today’s effort.

    I feel you are traveling against the trade winds. Glad you found an accommodating accommodation. I have only made it half way to my desired destination as well. I’m in Dallas, which is half way to everywhere!

    7mph? Ouch. Changed the oil on the bike today and aired up and gave her a good once over.
