Leaving Alberta

That was a rough headwind. We had only planned to ride about 90km today, as suggested by The Book, since the last two and next few will be large. Unfortunately a 30km/h headwind doesn't make for much of an easy day. Regardless, we worked well together on the second half of the ride and made it to our Caribbean themed campsite by about 1:00 pm. The extra daytime will give us a chance to catch up on a few things like minor maintenance, sleeping, laundry, etc. we should get on the road early again tomorrow as the wind seems to pick up as the sun rises. There are a lot of ants in the prairies. RVs annoy me more every day on the road, and every evening in the campsites. Why even leave your house if you're bringing 800 square feet of living space to go "camping"? The bike feels great, legs feel great, but continuously achy (breaky heart, you're welcome), and knee has stopped complaining since the mountains.
