Oh Kentucky

Day 9 Berea --> Springfeild
Day 10 Springfeild --> Eastview
Day 11 Eastview--> Sebree ...(first 100 mile day!!)

We currenlty have a love hate relationship with the state of kentucky. It seems that the weather is either great or awful....and right now its awful. The rain is ROCKING our lives...so were seeking refuge in the library. But were only about 60 miles from Illinois, so were trying achieve a new land very soon.

Highlights since last time-

-Slept inside of an empty church (and woke up to the rain, so it was nice to be inside)
-Passed our first time zone barrier!
-Had our first 100 mile day yesterday
-Had a homecooked meal (stirfry cabbage!!! ham, corn, potatoes, cornbread, apple dumplings icecream) , did laundry, took a shower, and slept on mattresses at First Baptist Sebree. Thanks to Pastor Bob and his wife Violet for an unbelievable amount of hospitality.

Lowlights-

-tried to use the post office, but passed about 5 in one day that were all closed
-our pace was too much for the netherland guys to keep up with, so we parted ways.
-our matches and some other stuff got blasted by the rain.

New pics should be up at the bottom....we've recieved feedback the big pics at the bottom are better than small on the right. Ok cool.

Congrats on the 100 mile day! Sorry your Netherland buddies couldn't keep up - they sounded like pretty cool guys. Maybe you'll hook up with other riders again soon.

Keep peddling!
