Just met Tom Parsons and his wife - owners of the Heirloom Bed & Breakfast that I'll be staying at here in Comfort. Great journey here. Now time for rest and recuperation!

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.
