Uphill and Against the Wind - TransAm E-W
By Dave T

Day 17: Berea to Berea - Rest day, sight seeing day

Monday June 2, 1986

I slept in to 8am this morning and it felt like noon. I guess I'm just used to getting up at 5:30am every day. A few of us went to the diner in town for some breakfast and I did some laundry after. During the laundry cycles I goofed around and checked out the town. The town is pretty neat and I'm glad to take a rest day and do some off bike exploring.

Back at camp Clay was busy calling the police, hospitals and everyone he can think of to find Phil. Today we are worried that something bad has happened to him. Maybe he got hit by a truck and is lying in the ditch somewhere. I hope he is ok. Phil would have enough sense to at least check in with BC. Well, maybe not.

Later that day we all walked into town and checked out the college and the sights. The walk seemed like about 3 miles each way, but it felt good to stretch my legs walking instead of riding. The college in quit nice and has history back to 1855. Since this is a dry county we had no options for getting a cold beer so we just headed back to the camp and see if there is any news about Phil.

Tomorrow I'm headed to Harrodsburg, about 60 miles or so away. Spent some time checking my bike, gear and getting everything organized. I'm happy the way my Cannondale panniers are working, and they are pretty waterproof.

Not much else to report today.
