Road with with Steve, Steve and Larry

Got out for a road ride with Steve and some friends early. The humidity must have been pushing 80% and everyone was just drenched with sweat by the end of the ride. Mowed the grass when we got home and lost of couple more pounds from sweating. Then thunderstorms moved in and cooled things off. Such a strange, rainy summer we are having.

Riding the trainer since it's still raining. Started listening to the podcast Old Ghosts of Appalachia while doing so, so really didn't mind that I was stuck inside.

Will this rain ever stop?

Rained most of the day. We decided to tackle cleaning out the garage and spent all morning and half the afternoon at that project. Pitched, donated or recycled a lot of stuff, and now it looks so clean and organized!

Speaking of recycling, we use Waste Management for garbage disposal/recycling, and they've gone to picking up recycling every other week because of the labor shortage. This was evidently communicated in an email that probably went into a spam folder. They did finally pick up in the afternoon but I was starting to think we'd have to break out another container to hold everything.

Then in the evening we decided to go to the Creek -- the local eatery that is just up the road. Walked in and walked right out. Again, not enough help and the place was a mess with dirty tables and not enough servers. Not sure how this is all going to end.

Hannibal gravel

We met Brenda and Joe in Hannibal for a gravel ride. Joe's not an early riser, so we decided to ride later in the morning. It was cool and kind of misty at first, but that burned off, the sun came out, and things got pretty warm. There was a lot of fresh, loose gravel on some of the westernmost roads, making for slow going, and some big climbs. Good route, I wish we had started earlier.
