Sunday, July 17
The ultimate rest day today. We went out to a diner for breakfast for $10- 3 eggs, homefries, toast and coffee/tea for each of us. That has become our typical breakfast because it's cheap and it's hard to cook breakfast without a fridge so we usually go out. We went to the grocery store and cvs to pick up some food and supplies, patched up my two tubes, did laundry and just chilled out. It rained for most of the afternoon so we were happy not to be riding. Dinner was corn in the cob, rice and black beans, cooked in our hotel room.

We were exhausted from Friday's long ride so we slept in until 10 and then waited out the rain until about 1:30. As soon as I got on my bike, I realized my bike had it's first flat tire. So we turned back to the campsite to fix it up. It didn't take long and we were on our way. We rode 40 miles to Wytheville and we knew we needed a rest day asap!
The highlight of today: we passed the section of the interstate where North 81 and South 77 are the same road an South 81 is the same as North 77. This is a very rare signing phenomenon and Ben was pumped about it!
