I spent an hour in the morning patching tubes and making various adjustments to the bike, end result I didn't get going until 9:30. 20 kilometers later the back tire went flat. I let out a long and colorful stream of obscenities. I swapped out the tube, putting back in the tire tape I hadn't used since early days Colombia. The tire held for the rest of the day thank god.
Just a lot of uneventful highway riding until the skies opened up around 4. I waited it out at a truck weigh station for a while with some guys who were driving tractors until I decided to just get wet. Why not? I was still damp from yesterday. I kept it up until dusk when I spied a hotel. I was so enthralled with the hot shower I took two. Going to have another one tomorrow morning as well!
