Day 18:Rest Day–Van Horn, Texas

May 9, 2011 § Leave a comment

Today is simple to write up. We took a rest day. This is akin to the “real tours”  that people pay for from Adventure Cycling  which have a rest day once a week.  This was our first rest day; we are banking the others for a rainy day.
Another option was to do a short day; however, we are, as the motel clerk said, in the middle of nowhere. There are literally no accommodations, camping or otherwise, for 70 plus miles.   So we sat pretty here in Van Horn.
Our big event of the day was a short walk to the Dollar General store in 88 degree heat to purchase new  sunglasses for Joe and more sunscreen for the both of us.
We hope to have our road life back to “normal” tomorrow.
