Where I stayed
Diamond Lake Resort
The town of Clay had quite the judicial buildings for such a small town....Dixon and Sebree were also very small but cute little towns to pass thru. In Sebree I stopped right at lunch to get some water and ice filled in my camelback and Chris was very generous about filling the big cup full of ice for me.....
Then I was in Utica and met Bob & Debbie in the JR Market they were having there lunch....a lot of the small towns have a little eating place in the Markets and make sandwiches and easy foods
The drivers are fast going on these back roads a little scary at times...Thank you truckers that move over for us cyclists, we appreciate the room when you can move and understand when you can't you wait behind us.....not everyone is so kind.
So I decided to camp since it was so hot and humid just couldn't stand the thought of being in a motel room....So I found that there was the Diamond Resort just about 10 miles out and I got in my Van and off I went....Janice greeted me at the front desk and got me a site under a tree and looking out at the pool and lake....two guys came in and noticed my leg had grease from my chain and mentioned how they liked my tatoo....I got my shower, had a nice salad with chicken, glass of wine and ate out under the big shelter by my site.
I was so tired that around 7:30pm I thought well I would just lay down for a bit before doing the blog, well I guess you know that was it for the night.....woke up at 10:30pm got my PJ's on and went back to sleep, rested very well
You can check out my video's on youtube, make a donation, sign up to be a Phantom Rider or Feeder or pass this on to friends and family......Good night.
