I never would have thought that the plains would be this discouraging. I guess we always assumed that it would be cold weather or mountains, but riding into the wind is the worst possible scenario, and it looks like it could be like this for a couple weeks straight. Not to mention, it just going to get colder and colder as we cross to the east and the bikes/tires/chains are a never ending source of stress. Heath and I are both feeling kind of shitty and the trip is getting less and less fun. With that in mind, we’ve decided that we would be better off booking a train and both going our separate ways. I’m not sure if either of us have spent so much time with one person 24/7 without any alone time. Time to move on.
I was going to make a video with all of the footage, but I’ll do a quick edit on the train and post it in a day or two.
