Woohoo, out of Texas! It was a nice ride today, if not a bit long. I had hoped to ride one hundred miles in a day this trip, but I’m not sure that’s going to happen. I’m pretty well spent after 80 miles or so. I rode 86.2 today and it felt like a 100. It does feel really good to have ridden all the way across Texas. It’s definitely a big state.
Here’s the map from today and some pix:
They had a lot of flooding in east Texas.You can see one of the logging trucks that constantly zoom by throwing detritus all over the place.The next few shots had a sweat filter applied unknowingly.Woof.Make sure you go lickedy splitly across thickety creek!A couple of fuzzy little horsey, donkey things.Bon Wier roughly translates to “good place to build a plywood factory”Seeing Texas in my rear view mirror.So long Texas, you’ll always have a piece of my toe.This river is the dividing line between Texas and Louisiana.There was no “Welcome to Louisiana” sign, so, this will have to do.A sign for an Indian burial mound.I think that’s a paper mill billowing smoke. It smelled like it anyway.
Tomorrow will probably be a shorter day. Maybe 30 or so miles to Oberlin or 60 some if I’m ambitious to Mamou.
