Make Your Mark

Day 17 – Springfield to Hodgenville, KY – 50 miles

Today was a rest / play day despite getting 50 miles in; why? Because we visited the Maker’s Mark Distillery in Loretto, KY.  I don’t drink much liquor, but when I do it’s Maker’s Mark; so this was quiet a treat.  When we arrived around lunch there was some strange touring cyclist who had already beat us here, so we adopted him and he is taking us the rest of the way to Oregon.

Actually the new cyclist is Jon who is from Minneapolis, MN and he started 4 days behind us, but despite that he managed to catchup to us by pulling long hard days and skipping rest days.  Jon glad to have you with us!
