We can't believe it, its cold again this morning. After the 100 degree stuff yesterday we didn't think being cold today was possible. We slowly get going. I'm having trouble getting our new international camp stove to do anything but scare Heidi. I miss my propane stove. We talk more about communication while on the road. 3 little pokes, Heidi sees something in the road like a hazard or something. A 2-handed chop, lets stop for a photo or a rest. One swift jab, we need to stop and pull off the road for equipment change or whatever as soon as it is safely possible.
At 1:00 PM the heat starts to rise again in a serious way and the wind is picking up. The wind is strong but at least it is on our rear quarter. It is fatiguing fighting the wind. We push hard again today wanting to make it down to the badlands, I know a camp there with a pool, cold beer and a tree. We are driven.
Cruising the back roads of South Dakota. 'Double chops' from Heidi. Good call.
