DAILY REPORT: David, John, James and Skip. This is our rest day. Sunny and hot. Expected temp in around 95 deg.
We slept in till 1130 this morning. We needed (and deserved) rest. Hung out at the hot spring pull and Jacuzzi. We also did some laundry - Mom would be proud. The boys even folded their own clothes!!
In the afternoon Skip and the boys played some Texas Hold'm. Dad repaired his biking shoes with shoe goo. I noticed they were starting to separate at the toe. Not good if they have another 2500 miles to go.
Tonight we headed into town for some burgers and watch the fireworks in the town of Plains. We stopped at a little burger joint called the Crystal and they had the best milk shakes! If you pass thru Plains you definetly want to stop by for one. Then we headed over to the Fairgrounds to watch the fireworks. The "kids" area was a war zone!! I have never seen/heard so many fireworks before (with the exception of Hawaii on New Years eve! Those who have lived in Hawaii know what I mean.) It was just unbelievable the amount of ordnance that was brought to shoot out over the South Forks River. WOW!! The folks in Plains really know how to celebrate the 4th of July!!
Thanks for joining us.....ride safely!! Happy 4th of July!!
