I liked the conversations but the winds were dealing a knock out punch to my body. I held up well yesterday, today I was drained. The last mile and one half, with all the stops and winds, took two and a half hours. I was glad to finally get to a place for the night and grateful for a woman who shuttled me to the van right away.
