Ryan is getting set up in the tent. There are enough insects that we picked up a few citronella candles when we were getting dinner, and they seemed to help. Fern Clyffe State Park in Goreville, Illinois, has very nice camp sites in the first come first served section, and I presume the rest of the park is just as nice but we didn’t look around much. Time for nomming dinner, getting ready for bed, blog, and getting lights for the bikes set to recharge then get to sleep to recharge ourselves, too.
We actually met a gentleman in the campground who has been trike-ing for a good portion of his life, and biked a lot before that. It was interesting to talk with someone who has trike recumbent knowledge and experience who isn’t actually on the trail. Also, thanks to the couple people who gave us confirmation or direction on where to head back on track!
