Well; after yesterdays more reasonable weather it sure got hot again. As
you can see from the above I had 30c right from the early morning and it
didn?t exactly cool down later on. To add to the fun there was a lot of
humidity in the air making it an interesting challenge to get the stage
Fortunately I had good crewing again: Dave and Brenda Maxvell who both is
tri athletes and good distance runners so they knew what it was all about
:-) They took turns in running with me with the other biking beside us
and managed to set a brisk pace despite heat and a couple of long high
hills. Good effort especially as they participated in a triathlon
Tonight I am staying at their place in Wesby - if you think it sounds
Scandinavian then that not far off: It was founded by Norwegian settlers
and still has Norwegian names on some of the houses. For example the
Veterinary in town is the "Dyrlege"; so here it definitely helps to know a
few words in Scandinavian :-)
