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.
