A long day ahead

I got up this morning in our b&b room, and while waiting for Cabell to get up, spent some time with the maps. Turns out we have to go further than we’d thought, because the way into Columbia is all backtracking. So we’re looking at about 78 miles today. On the plus side, we’re staying with Cabell’s friends Crystal and Sam, who are very nice, and I imagine they’ll take us in no matter how late we are.

Still, we can’t take another death march. So I’d like to get started as early as possible. Yesterday we made about 10.5 mph including stops, and we were working way too hard a lot of that time. Today maybe we should shoot for 8 mph. The gravel path is pretty good, but it’s still slower than pavement. And besides, we’re on vacation.
