Day 46 – Lander to Dubois, WY – 75 miles (windy)
If it was easy everyone would be doing it, this what I told myself as I suffered throughout the day. Todays overall speed average was the lowest of the trip at 9.9mph. Typically we can get a jump on the day to beat the wind, but due to a cold front that moved through last night the winds stayed high and constant since yesterday.
I won’t say it was worse then that day in Kansas but it was equally as hard in different ways. In Kansas the winds were at 30+ mph gusting 50-60, today they were around 20 mph gusting 30-40 but the distance was longer and there was climbing all day; it just grinds on you after a while.
I did however get to meet some great folks on the road and at my lunch spot / overnight place. Big Thanks to Kevin for the introduction to Lee* and Lee* Thank You for putting a free roof over my head, bed, and shower; your a saint!
