Day 9: Restful

Being a rest day, not much to report except that Lisa has her new shoes and cooling sleeves. We also restocked on toiletries and picked up a king size fitted sheet for the air mattress. We spent the day relaxing around camp, re-hydrating and refueling – no bike time.

Yesterday we rode most of the day by ourselves. Not sure if that might have contributed to our fatigue. I think it had more to do with the headwind. It was the only day of the last four that we did not make a wrong turn. Bubba contributed that to it being the first day that he had personally placed route arrows. We should be okay tomorrow because I was able to download the instructions to navigate through Tucson.

Tourist: there was an ostrich farm along the route, but we weren’t in any shape to add to our daily mileage or time on the road. We also did some star gazing with amateur astronomers. The views were awesome without local lights nearby.
