Super chill rest day in Bismarck ND. Late rise, then breakfast at the Super 8 feed trough. Back to the room for more rest, wi-fi, TV. Basically some serious chilling.
Among the few items we did accomplish today was a trip to the bike shop for spare tubes and also a spare chain for Jack. Lunch at Applebee’s (I had a sirloin dinner), then I went shopping for a Sham-wow since I left mine hanging on a tree at Totten Trail Resort. Finally found a box of them at a CVS, took two out and gave all the rest of them to the cashier.
Dinner at DQ (milkshake for me and Coke float for Jack)…breakfast of champions. The finely tuned atheletes. Mindless movies on HBO for dessert, then a readying of gear for tomorrow.
I talked to Jesse tonight, now 75 miles away and closing in on Omaha. He has a funny story to tell of seeing a bag tucked up beneath an interstate overpass and going to investigate. Check it out on his blog: http://www.crazyguyonabike.com
