Day 5 Tuesday May 20
North of Las Vegas to Phoenix
I was cursing the wind today. I should have pushed on last night. It was blowing but not this bad. Headwinds suck but headwinds on a loaded 250 with 70 mph speed limits is a whole new level of suckage.
Wind is the continuing theme through out the day. My bike has 6 gears and I was in 4th and 5th most of the day to try and keep near the speed limit. I drafted people whenever possible.
The wind finally died down a little bit when I was almost to Phoenix. Got to my Uncles house fairly exhausted. Tomorrow I rest. Kinda.
There is a joke in here somewhere. You can also see the wind in all of the flags.
Gas and machine guns. A natural combination
Took a break here. Needed some water and a picture of Dr Suess trees.
I had shipped my camping gear to my cousins in Houston while I was in Boise. I was planning on hoteling it while in Mexico. Hence my bike is now missing a bag in the pictures. I still had my Hennessy hammock with me though if I found somewhere I really needed to stay.
