Day 25

Hello all from Jayton, TX. Today I rode just over 54 miles, most of it was easy going with the wind at my back. When I have the tail wind I am at times getting up to 25 miles per hour. On todays ride I stopped and talked with a man who is travelling from the west coast to the east coast via covered wagon pulled by mules. I found out that Gene is averaging about 16 miles per day and has a traveling companion with him, his dog. When I got to Jayton I asked about a campground, but there wasn't one near by with a bathroom. I asked if there was anywhere else I could stop and I was told that I could camp in the city park by the sheriff. So I am camping in Jayton's city park tonight. Tomorrow I hope to make it to Haskell, TX and stay in a motel so I can get a warm shower and clean up a bit.

Till tomorrow, Jochen
