Post for May 17, 2021
I left my new friend Mary’s place in Bemidji, after enjoying another conversation with her and writing to some friends. After a quick stop at a grocery store, I was back on the MRT.
This portion was mostly bike trails which often went by lakes. While going by one lake, I stopped and had a snack with some friendly guys on a patio. Stopping for snacks is becoming a new “problem.” I’m always hungry. According to my smart watch, I’m burning about 3,000 calories a day.
At the end of the day, I camped next to a lake. I stayed up about 2 hours past my bedtime looking at the stars and listening to crickets, frogs, and loons.
The song for this post, from my bike-touring playlist is Stuff That Works.
