Uphill and Against the Wind - TransAm E-W

Day 18: Berea to Harrodsburg - Rolling hills, no horses, more pizza, and Daniel Boone

Tuesday June 3, 1986, 55 miles (89 km) - Total so far: 864 miles (1,390 km)

The night and morning were very cool, but as the morning wore on it got hot and humid. This seems to be a normal pattern, cool mornings, heat and humidity by noon. I took a shower this morning just because I could. Gene and I hit the diner about 7am, while everyone else was still asleep.

Riding out of Berea the roads were pretty good and the traffic was light. We traveled through the rolling hills of the Kentucky Bluegrass country. I didn't see any horses.... where are the horses? I did see plenty of cows. The ride today was very enjoyable and went by pretty quick. I'm in really good condition and most days my legs feel like they are on cruise control. Gene and I played our first game of "catch up" in a few days and I out ran him with ease. Free lunch for me, once again.

The traffic was heavy as we pulled into Harrodsburg Pizza Hut for lunch. I guess I have been eating a lot of pizza, but I like it. This was another dry county so no beer again tonight. We waited for the rest of the BC group to arrive while we looked around town.

Today we camped at Old Fort Harrod State Park, which has no camping but we had permission from the Mayor. In the park there is a replica of the fort from 1774. I explored the grounds and fort this afternoon.

Today is Rich's birthday (BC group), he invited everyone out to dinner to celebrate. We had a pretty good time and everyone seemed to be getting along pretty good. Phil is still missing and has been on everyone's mind.

During the evening the Mayor came by with a big jug of whiskey, we all sat around sipping whiskey and telling stories of the road. Later that evening we watched a dress rehearsal of "The Legend of Daniel Boone", which performs the show in the park. The play was pretty good .. for free.
