Not Quite to Luther

15 miles away! So close, but so far away. If you didn’t catch it earlier, Luther is where we switch maps and start heading east again into Canada and so forth. It was our goal today, but we came a little bit short with a 95 mile day to Garlets Corner. This would be a town composed of, well nothing, except I guess of a little campsite that we chose to camp at. Things got a little spooky the last 10 miles of today, because we saw a zombie woman walk out if the woods in the middle if nowhere and then we crossed a heard of turkeys and then bats were flying all around us. AND, to end it all we were told that there was a 500+ pound bear wondering around our campsite. So, hopefully we will be connecting with you guys yet again tomorrow. The highlight of my day today, apart from the scorching heat and hills, was this really really really fluffy dog I was able to pet outside a grocery store. Honestly the fluffiest thing ever, which, if you knew my text notification would come off slightly ironic. As far as tomorrow is concerned we would like to make it to Bay City, but it might be a little bit of a stretch. We have a trailer for the bike waiting for us at a bike shop there. If we don’t make it though, no worries, we can just pick up the trailer Wednesday morning and then into Canada we go. As far as our bodies, our muscles are getting bigger, along with our tan lines and our butts are incredibly soar like you couldn’t even imagine. But, other than that, not much new has happened. We feel fairly cut off so feel free to comment an update about what’s going on in your life, I don’t want to do all the talking. For example, “it’s still winter in Duluth” or “there is another flood, even though we live on a tiny mountain.” Anyway, stay healthy and go on a run with your kid. Or your parents. Whichever makes more sense.

Not many pictures today apart from that fluffy fluffy dog! Again, the photo just does not do this big fella justice.
