Average Speed - I was the slowest thing on the Interstate
Lodging - Lazy Acres Campground - $10
Yesterday I was worn out, so I climbed in the tent early. Then it dawned on me. The campground was right next to Interstate 80...the noise!! I got to where I could tune out the steady drone of traffic and then it dawned on me that the campground is right by train tracks as well. Every train (alot of them) that passed delighted itself in blowing their horn in repeated, long, relentless blast. AAAAHHHHH!!!
This morning I woke up, eager to get away from this treeless campground and the noisy interstate. It turns out I wasn't done with the interstate quite yet. A scant 7 miles into my route, the map had me turning left onto the entrance ramp to I-80. I've been on this earth 55 years and riding on an Interstate is a first...
Looking LeftToward the end of the day the scenery started to change to more trees and more green. Check out my campsite.
What a difference a day makes. Don't worry, I already scouted the area...no interstate...no train tracks...sweet dreams.
