Finally about to strike out east, wending my way back towards my beloved Atlantic! Slowly. Really fucking slowly.
Today will be mildly tedious, as it’s almost all on US 150-E and I kind of prefer the rides broken up into a handful of shorter legs. But it’s 50 miles, which is a good day’s distance: it’s long enough that I feel like I’m getting somewhere, but not so long that I’m concerned about my ability to get there by dark.
And tomorrow I should finally get the fuck out of Illinois (I don’t quite count my sojourn into STL) and into Indiana! Shit’s wild, you guys.
I am so cool. Between the KY jelly coating my thighs and the sunscreen slathered on the rest of me, I just really, really wish I had a Slip-n-Slide right now. God, please date me.
