Daily mileage 34.95 Segment 82.66 Total 584.8
Route: Pine Bluff to Stuttgart AR (Best Western).
The forecast called for 92 deg temperatures, with a South wind. It was very hot, with the wind from 2 to 4 O’clock all trip – the same as yesterday.
Again, I had a nap at about the half way point (Wabbaseka), in a city park.
There were more friendly people in a gas station where I had lunch and filled up with water in Humphrey.
The saddle sores are starting again. I had a well worn seat pad, which I replaced just before this trip segment. I’m not sure if that has changed anything, but I’m getting quite sore a lot sooner than I think I should be. A long shower in the hotel helped a little, but unfortunately not enough.
Stuttgart is a nice little town, but there are no dinner places open in the evening. Everything seems to close at 17:00 or so, and I walked probably 5 miles to figure that out. I had 6 wings from a nearby Valero gas station.
