Today was a short day as far as mileage is concerned but long thanks to the 95 degree temps!
I rode from Dayville to John Day Oregon which was relatively flat with just a few modest climbs. To keep my mind off the heat I put my headphones on listened to music while riding along the John Day river. I was noticing a lot of the lyrics mirrored how I'm feeling about this journey...here are a few of them.
"So often time it happens, that we live our lives in chains and we never even know we have the key"
Already Gone by The Eagles
"When your hourglass runs out of sand you can't flip it over and start again. Take every breath God gives you for what it's worth"
Don't Blink by Kenny Chesney
"His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand the serenity of a clear blue mountain lake. And the Colorado Rocky Mountain High, talk to God and listen to the casual reply"
Rocky Mountain High by John Denver
"So If you're tired of the same old story, oh turn some pages"
Roll with the changes by REO Speedwagon
"When the water's high, when the weather's not so fair, when the well runs dry, who's gonna be there, you find out who your friends are"
You find out who your friends are by Tracy Lawrence.
I'm about 180 miles from my home town of Meridian, Idaho! Don't know the exact date I'll be rolling through but it's in sight and I'm looking forward to seeing Nick and my co-workers at Office Value!
