OK, this was a fun day but another long one. We did 66 miles and now have done a total of 1005 miles. Travel was from Raymond to Shelton WA.
The conditions were nice, only about 3 minutes of light sprinkle and almost sunny at times. Temperatures were perfect for biking in the mid 60’s and the terrain was not too bad with mostly rolling terrain and only a couple of hills of significance early in the day.
Compared with the rather impoverished areas we have been passing through, the towns today seemed progressively more prosperous. Elma had very new High School and Middle School buildings. Shelton is a fairly large town and we were able to do a laundry and had a choice of several restaurants for dinner.
This is still logging country with several large saw mills along the way and many forests that had been harvested and replanted along the way.
We are feeling good and seem to be getting a little stronger each day.
Having hit 65+ miles today again, I would challenge those pledging by the mile to double their pledge for today.
