State number 12, New Hampshire.
Today was slow and steady and ended up being really tiring. I rode 64 miles with some steep climbing and kind of hit a mental and physical WALL after about 50 miles.
I'm having so many conflicting thoughts. I go from excited at being nearly done, to a bit dissapointed. Then I feel like it has all gone by so quickly, yet these last few days are seeming to take FOREVER!!
I'm staying with my third warmshowers hosts tonight. A very warm a quirky couple who again have been just so welcoming and made me feel very relaxed. Julie and Dave have a nice house in a very rural setting. Apparently a bear has been spotted in a neighbours garden the last few days. I'm getting closer.
As a hobby Dave runs a shooting range so I got to watch some 'gun nuts' enjoying their shooting earlier.
Julie kindly picked me up to save the mile or so journey up a dirt road to their house and we shared another great meal.
In other news today, I pedalled, allot.
I'm too tired to write any more. The last of the big climbs tomorrow before just plain old hills for a couple of hundred miles. Easy!!!
