Pulled into The SmittyVille General Store and was instantly greeted by the owner who said cyclists get a free bottle of water. Music to my ears. Bought a Gatorade and feeling much better now that I've rested in the shade.

Finding shady spots to hydrate and cool down. Soon will be off the IH-10 access road which should cool things off. Lots of hill climbing at the moment.
