Fields, Fields, and More Fields

The Frog Journal

After endless corn fields, headwinds, and the dryest heat, Andre finally broke. He couldn’t deal with clothes anymore (Eliot and Zach only made it about 3 days to be fair), and it was just chamois all day. The winds finally broke and while Eliot was sprinting his last 80 miles to make it to Hannah right on time, Andre and Zach were enjoying a slow paced ride to Westville, IN, a nice 70 miles, where they ate and camped next to a farm. It was a nice, easy day, hence why there isn’t much to say….but then again there isn’t much in Indiana. Nonetheless, we were excited to get to bed at a very early hour. We had entered central time that day and we were ready to get up early to get to Chicago. At this point we were both ready for a two day off…just 60 more miles.
