We are in Silsbee, TX and this is our last night in Texas. Tomorrow we will be having margaritas in Cajun country - Lake Charles, Louisiana. Only three weeks left of this tour and there are lots of mixed feelings - getting tired of some aspects of touring (different beds every night, loading/unloading luggage from the trailer, hotel breakfasts, etc. But there is also a sense of wanting some aspects to go on longer - the camaraderie, the riding, the having no "job" except riding a bike, the discovery every day of another little corner of this great country. Reentry may be the toughest part of the trip. If I sit on a plastic chair in the driveway, will Lew bring me my supper? And a beer?
Yesterday was my "be grumpy and hard to get along with" day. It started out dark, cloudy and COLD - then it started spitting rain. I took a bump out to the first SAG, but it was still cold and the wind had been added to the mix. I decided to just bag it and take the van in, so I could have some alone time. I walked to Walmart and bought a pair of long pants (obviously I sent mine home too soon) - adding that to the umbrella I bought in Navasota and we should have excellent weather from here on out.
