April 26, 2022

I woke to the sound of light rain on the tent.  When I looked out it was light snow that melted when landed.  Went back to sleep.  Noon start had me fully bundled as the temp was just at freezing 32F.  Riding around a lake on a forested road I looked forward to the climbs to bring me warmth.  Then there was the long drop into the valley with a cascading river near by.  I stop again and again to try to bring feeling to my feet.  Warm did not come quickly in the valley.  I need to ride many miles up the valley before I could feel the body warming.  I stopped early hoping to get to Gol with time to update the blog before needing to ride onward to find a camp.

I would like to do your trips except stay in hotels and eat in restaurants.

Impressed. What's happened since April? Are you in the Baltic Republics, now?
