Wet, wet day today. It's ok, my jacket works good. My pants keep everything but my crotch dry. And it was warm but not too hot. Certainly could have been worse. And the mountains look cool in the clouds.
GPS sent me on a detour down a 10 mile side trip down a dead-end. At the end it told me "take a right" but the only thing there was a guy's front yard. It's a weird deal, the road didn't have a dead end sign on it or anything. I almost feel like I missef something. And GPS was kind of a pain in the rain, because I had to keep my phone in my pocket and going by audio commands alone left a lot to be desired. GPS took me down some comically narrow and beat up paved roads over some mountain passes in Kentucky. Don't know why it made me grumpy, those roads and that dead-end were pretty damn fine riding. But GPS was frustrating me, and I kind of wanted to get off the road. It all worked out
One thing about spending a day riding in the rain, it makes Huddle Hut fried chicken with white gravy and mashed potatoes and southern green beans and a bit of Knob Creek taste pretty damn okay. I don't know what these Southerners do to the green beans, but they taste like meat, ham to be specific. Could b be the best damn vegetable I've ever had.
Rode around Burke's Garden this morning, this high-elevation plane surrounded by mountains. Really pretty beautiful.
