"Somehow I managed to zone out and pull through"

The ride from Atikokan to Kakabeka Falls was freaking big. It was about 180km and was very windy. About 65km in I wasn't sure if I was going to make it. Somehow I managed to zone out and pull through but it was still about an 8 hour day of pedaling. Of course it didn't help that there was a time zone change part way which made me lose an hour. By the time I had finished the ride, bought groceries, and rolled into the provincial park it was after 5pm. That makes for a very rushed campsite assembly and dinner prep. After a long phone call with Kamala I ended up going to bed pretty late.

I almost should have just found a cheap motel because the park charged almost $40 for a site. Definitely a rip off. Oh well. The big plus of the day was that I didn't get rained on.
