Ride Day 37

I had fun in Austin TX last night. We went out for some Cajun food that was very tasty. I had lobster bisque followed by Blackened salmon with crawdads, shrimp and crab along with some dirty rice. I loved it. Then we went out to a bar that had karaoke where we listened to some singers and then one of the girls with us sang a song and we left for home. I had quite a few beers and I did not think I would be able to get up and hit the road the next morning. I did end up hitting the road though. I decided to just get myself back out of Austin so that I would be able to get a good ride the next day. However, once I started to ride I just kept going. I made it to La Grange which was a long haul of about 95 miles from my starting point. I set up my tent, did my laundry and now I am just waiting for it to be late enough for me to go to bed. I feel good right now. I only have a few more days left in TX. Tomorrow I should be able to make it to Navsota TX which is about 75 miles or so away. The RV park I am in is right on the Colorado River and is clean and quiet so I should be able to get some sleep as long as my pain doesn't get too high tonight. There is a swimming pool but I did not swim and the showers were perfect after my long ride. I did not take a single pic today. I am too burned out on seeing the same things every single day. I will try to find something tomorrow to take a pic of. I am always telling people my bike is my wheelchair but this bike in the pic above is the real thing.


  1. It was a pleasure to meet you and we had a blast as well. Feel free to look us up if you are ever in the area again. And wow! 95 miles!!

  2. Roll on Roach! The meal in Austin sounded great! What an asshole the federale was. Ride on the bike lane eh? What a joke!
