05/24 (Day 35)
Well it was a pretty good night of sleep. I stayed up until 1:00 writing and I was exhausted when I went to bed. I could have gone to sleep four or five hours earlier. I woke up this morning around 7:15 with the wind howling away and was beyond exhausted. I went outside to go to the bathroom and crawled back into my tent to sleep for another hour before waking up again at 8:30 and amazingly enough was excited for the day. The goal in my mind is to make it 78 miles. The Kansas border is 20 miles east and the wind is coming from the south at 29 mph. Sever thunderstorms are in the forecast but again I am for some reason very excited for the day. The weatherman is telling me it is supposed to be hot, maybe 85 degrees, but I’m not sure if that will be noticeable with the wind blasting. Every pedal will get me a little bit further. Every 600 or so pedals will get me another mile.
