Day 16 Booneville to Berea 50 miles

Weather was clear hot and humid again. Hands feel like they have been in a bucket of water all day long. Sweat runs off arms into the gloves and they get really soaked.

More hills but I have the drill down. When about to drop into the small ring get off and walk. Everybody,knees, quads, feet, arms, and mind, are happier. I can do this all day long where as if I try to grind up the hills I wear out real fast. And no one is happy.

Camping tonight ($7.00 with full hook ups and a table)

May take a rest, more like a bike, day. Bike needs some TLC.

End of Map 11 today. Hopefully will be leaving the frequent big hills behind soon. Going off route to get to bike shop. Need some handle bar wrap soon.
