+22c, clear and medium wind at start.
30c, and same at finish.

Today?s stage turned out to be a positive surprise as the distance to
Belvidere was about 10-15km shorter than I had expected. Nice when it
works out that way :-)

The weather is also not too bad with relatively low humidity compared to
what I have had for the last 5 weeks and as always humidity is much more
of a problem for me than hot temperatures themselves.

Tomorrow I have been invited to a picnic with the Danish club in Chicago
so there will be a rest day set aside for that. This will be my only
chance to see Chicago close-up as my run will take me in a circle around
the South side of the city to avoid the very dense traffic the last
20miles into city centre.

The next stages are:

7.08: Rest day w. the Chicago Pioneer / Danish Club.

8.08: To: Marengo.
