70 miles, 649 total. Yes, it’s Kentucky! One state down and a whole bunch to go. We crossed into Kentucky shortly after we got started this morning.
Today was our TOUGHEST day yet, in terms of distance (70 miles) and hills (2 that went on for miles in our lowest gears, gasping the whole way).
As we arrived at the Knott County Historical Hostel the genial host met us at the top of the driveway with iced tea (lemon slice on the side of the glass). We all collapsed until a dinner of pizza, pop, and cold beer. The host had clean towels for us, along with toiletries, as we showered away the grime and sweat from our muscle-aching ride (he ran a bed and breakfast for 13 years). After dinner, he served us huge helpings of chocolate sundaes.
Sleep will come quickly tonight!
