So here is the list of things I was thinking of for today:
-There was a massive storm system that is rolling through the northeast dumping rain and snow and causing temperatures to plummet.
-I’m in the northeast.
-Being in the northeast, I have come across the majority of the Appalachian Mountains, which has meant 44,000′ of climb over the last 700 miles.
-Having not taken a break in 9 days, I have been worn down.
Adding all those things together, I decided today was a good day to take off. I needed the rest and the weather is supposed to be better tomorrow.
So today I slept in, watched tv, took a nap, did laundry and took care of some bike maintenance. Tomorrow I’m off to cross the Blue Ridge and make some good headway. Should be just a few more days until I’m done!
