9:10pm July 18, 92
Well, it took a long time, but I did it - 200 km today! And not an easy time.
I froze this morning - critically. All my stuff was wet. Damn this jacket that's supposed to be, but isn't waterproof!
I saw a beautiful fawn and her mom, snow white both, but my hands couldn't move so no picture. The cold isn't really the problem, but combined with the wet it is becoming a major problem. I am beginning to think that I may not be able to get by with what I have. I definitely have to do something about sleeping, this bag is useless.
It was so many steep hills this morning before the border. I thought my bike would break as I had to strain so hard (I decided I could walk the next one, but then they weren't so bad).
And then the sun came out and I got dried off!!!!!! By 4pm I was warm.
It's late now and I want to be on the road by 6:30. I'm letting myself sleep in as I only have 160 km left. It will be pretty tough though as I'm sore. But I can have steak tomorrow night!!
The mosquitoes are even worse. It's so nice inside the tent, but loading and unloading is fierce. It's at the point where the bites just hurt.
