A little warmer today getting into the low 80s. Today I experienced the strongest wind so far. A tailwind can speed you up, but today I had a head wind up to 20 mph. Oh, does that beat you down, but luckily it was not the whole day. Fighting the wind sure takes your energy.
As I stopped under these tall trees I could hear them creak and crack due to the strong winds; I felt that I should move on.
There is one of these near my home at Great Lakes Crossing Outlet Mall. I was glad that stores were opened recently during the pandemic. The capacity of customers allowed to come in is half of what is normally allowed. When carrying all your gear means that you travel as light as you can. I picked up some freeze dried suppers. These are always good to keep because you cannot always get to a place to buy food. You need fuel for your tank. Museums are still closed due to the pandemic.
Red's Giant Hamburgers is credited with being the first restaurant with a drive through window. Red Chaney came to town after World War Two and bought a service station. In 1947 he opened the cafe. This was a popular stop for many decades. It closed in 1984 and recently reopened.
A good smooth trail was enjoyed today,
I love my riding days and look to find interesting and informative items to share.
