The plan for today was to complete the long baron stretch to Umatilla that i started yesterday. Yesterday’s miles meant that there was only 30 miles to go today. I set off early to beat the heat. About 15 miles in, i stopped to refuel with some breakfast. Wary of the time, i set off quite sharpish and arrived at Umatilla around 12. Today’s ride was pretty uneventful, although i did get my daily cut. I seem to pick up little cuts on my leg quite frequently, probably from getting on and off the bike. I don’t even notice that it has happened, but because i don’t do anything about it and then the wind catches the blood, it makes the tiniest cuts look pretty gruesome. I checked into a motel, turned the air con on full blast and turned the tv on. Spent the day watching tv, doing washing and catching up on the blog. I got a microwaveable pizza for lunch and another for dinner. Aiming for walla walla tomorrow.
