Journal entry – 14 June 2015, Sun

Journal entries are just that – the digital copy of my hand-written entries in my journal. If you aren’t interested in the daily details of our adventure, feel free to skip on to the next “regular” post.

Woke up to rain on the roof and a chill in the air. I made coffee and settled in for some journaling while Ashley slept. When she woke we ate breakfast and then watched a couple episodes of “Friends”, waiting for the sunnier weather predicted for the afternoon.

Once the sun emerged we hit the road on our bicycles for a 25-mile day. Headed out to the National Forest ranger welcome station where we could hopefully hike a bit. It was closed, so we looked at the maps and then headed on.

Coming back into St. Ignace Ashley’s tire went flat. We stopped and aired it up. It seemed to hold so we went on – there was no obvious blow-out location like mine had. Stopped on the other side of town for a snack – tire was flat again.

Hoping to rush and make it home we aired up and hit the road. Made it a couple of miles. Tried again and perhaps made it half a mile. Ashley walked the last stretch while I rode on ahead.

Once she arrived we patched her tube and aired it back up, only to have it blow again. Enough of that, we can replace it tomorrow.

Beans and rice have been in the crockpot all day, so after showers it’s time to eat!
