Rolling Hills and Barbed Wire

Day 51 - 7/24/17 - Murphysboro, IL to Eddyville, IL- 63 Miles

Average Speed - I couldn't seem to move it

Lodging - Hayes Canyon Campground - $15
Who woulda thunk that there were so many different kinds of barbed wire.  Goes to show, you learn something new everyday if you keep your eyes, ears and heart open!

This morning I couldn't drag myself out of bed.  I guess that 87 mile day yesterday wore me out more than I thought.  I finally got on the road around 7 AM. 

The hills aren't as steep as in Missouri, but they be a plentiful.  Overall today was a pleasant ride.  The roads were nice and the traffic was minimal. 

These 60ish mile days are ideal, I need to try and keep my mileage to that and stop trying to push it to bigger days.

Tonight I'm staying in an actual campground.  This is the first time I've paid for a campsite since Colorado.  There's no pool either.  I miss Kansas!
