  Wall to Murdo

 
  This was going to be a long ride and it was going to be over 100 F !  
 

As usual, the early morning ride was nice and cool. By 11AM, it was heating up and I was fading fast. I had to stop every chance I could and soak myself and my clothes in water. There were also no overpasses for shade. I met another cyclist going the opposite way. He was riding from Boston to Seattle. He said I was the first touring cyclist he had seen since he had left Chicago. By the time I made it to Murdo, I was an overcooked vegetable. It took me ten hours !
