We’ve begun our roadtrip. Myself, Mr Man, Spyderman, and Speedy are traveling down Route 66. The first few days are just getting to Joplin, MO where we will begin our adventure. Day One was a long hard tiring push up I35 at night into Denton, TX. Five hours later we rolled out on our way to Muskogee, Ok.
I have really profound thoughts on the bike. I try to hold them in my head but they never stay put. I held on to one thought today so I could put in my blog. Spyderman, who rides in front of me has a Tourmaster Jacket. All Tourmaster Jackets have a reflective triangle on the neck with the pointy side up. I just kept thinking it was like a reminder, “this end up”. Upon reflection, that is not as profound as I thought it was.
Today was rather pleasant. We did about 220 miles today. I can tell two things. One, I’ve been off the bike way too long and I’m out of shape for it. Two, the time I’ve been spending in the gym has paid off and I’m not in as much pain as I would have been this time last year. So yay for my efforts.
Tomorrow we have a short day to Joplin so we can do a Wal-Mart run and pick up things we forgot. I’m exhausted from the cumulative days riding. I’m pick this back up tomorrow.
