Day 3: Flexibility and Plan B

We are learning quite early in this adventure that flexibility is the name of the game! Our youngest boy woke up feeling bad this morning and is running a fever. So, we are staying put today. He is resting well, and the day has turned into a rest day for all 5 of us. Our legs were begging for a rest anyway. If you have to be “stuck” somewhere, Westover on a gorgeous, sunny, breezy day with incredibly accommodating friends is the way to go!

I (LisaPage) managed to hand wash our laundry last night from the past 2 days. This is all part of getting our system down. We will not always hand wash the clothes. Of course, we will frequent laundromats when we come across them, and we will accept offers of people’s facilities whenever that happens. But, boy, we pick up a lot of dirt when we’re riding!! Check it out...

 Here is the water after washing out a few pairs of shorts. You should have seen it after washing all of our shirts and socks!

Another issue today was that we found that the front tire on the triple was flat. But Jerry came to the rescue and was able to patch it, so it’s ready whenever we are able to hop back on the bikes. Thankful for Jerry’s repair knowledge and skills!!
