Day 9 Niagara Falls 6-31
As we walk out of our rooms to eat we meet up with Mark. He says they are both very tired and are just going to stay in today. Well, I tell him that we are thinking about going ahead and checking out today and make some miles back towards home to beat the rain. We go ahead and sit down and eat, and Diana & Chris,and Jennifer and Steve show up, and we discuss the plans that we discussed last night. Rains are definitely coming and if we wait another day we will be right in it for sure. Diana &I go down and tell Mark and Carolyn we have all decided to head south. They agree, and we all start packing up to head towards Cuba, Missouri. It is around 10 and we are on the road. The heat index is supped to be over 100 today, and as we pull out there is a cloud cover and it makes for a nice ride. We actually run into a little rain, and it would dry on you before you knew it. Would be nice to have that type of ride all day, but we couldn't be that lucky. Each time we stop to get gas, it is getting a little warmer. Passing a guy that is a hot tar roofer, looks like his pot was overflowing and got the 3 bikes behind us.
