It Is What It Is

Day 47 - 7/20/17 - Mansfield, MO to Houston, MO - 67 Miles

Average Speed - TBD

Lodging - City Park - Free

I was on the road shortly after 5:30 this morning.  I could continue to drone on about the heat, humidity and hills, but, what's the point?  It is what it is!  Let's focus on something I can control...

Enjoying the ride...

Once again, I'm staying in a city park and within a stone's throw is the community pool.  I spent the afternoon lounging and swimming and eating freezer pops.  Ain't nothing wrong with that.

The last couple days I've been riding and camping in the company of the couple from England (David and Jess) and Seth from CA.  I've really enjoyed their company.  In the evenings we sat around the picnic table and enjoyed a couple cold beers and talked.  I suspect tomorrow we will be going separate ways.  They are riding a short day tomorrow and taking a rest day the following day to enjoy a river float.  I will be pushing on!  I am saddened to part company.
