Day 63, 53 miles, Jul 20
This was a very pleasant day as the heat abated somewhat. Don't get me wrong; it was still hot enough to fry an egg in your pants, but at least the sweat stayed out of my eyes for once. I spent a while walking the grounds of the Lincoln Homestead Park. This is a picture of the forge where Abe's father worked (or a replica of it). I'm looking forward to the mountains of the eastern part of the state. Even though they're touted as the most difficult part of the TransAm, I figure that at least they'll be cooler!
