Kind of a brutal day today temperature wise, but I did good drinking tons of water and resting in the shade. I spent like 5 or 6 years in Columbia Missouri in grad school, and I rode roads today in North West Missouri that I've never been on and are probably the most beautiful area the state I've ever seen. At one point I rested for maybe 20 minutes old-growth oak forest, I think like a one-car went by. It was silent except for the birds. Pretty freaking awesome.
My phone knows how to pick the good roads, although occasionally it sends me on these really minor dirt roads that I don't know if most GPS would send you on.
I stopped at this one park to fill my dromdary bag with water, and this young guy walks over with two bottles of water that he had fished from his ice cooler, I think his mom sent sent him over. **** like that makes me smile so much.
Staying at a friend's house tonight, got some pizza at the old college haunt Shakespeare's Pizza. There is not much better, and they serve gin and tonics! Thank God for the motorcycle, otherwise I'd hang on 9th Street all night and drink until I got stupid.
