2005.08.06. [green road sign on Hwy. 20: "Freeport 22miles" (noting the
distance in the
opposite direction), about 500meter before county-mile-sign 11] -
[Belvidere; green city sign on Hwy. 20: "Belvidere"].
30km, 2:53:07h. Excl. food, water, road-finding, toilet etc. stops
Time GMT - 7 hours
+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.
- All the above on Hwy. 20.
