    Well that was 110 miles of wetness: some leaked through - let’s say that it leaked through the collar.... and it got cold as we slogged through that cold front.
    Now in Arkansas. Heated gear on!

    California seems to be on fire again. You guys may want to reroute. Then again fire would definitely add to the adventure.

    Hibachi steak and shrimp. Hit the spot!
    Rode 128 more miles after the snack. Staying in Fort Smith AR tonight. 635 miles today. Another great day - more difficult than yesterday because of the rain and the cold. I am tired!
