"...fought my way out of the death maze that is city traffic"

After waking up in my swanky hotel room at 6:30 and stuffing as much of their complementary breakfast into myself as I could I packed up to get out of the city. I was on the road by 8:30 and fought my way out of the death maze that is city traffic on the first school day of the year. I had a pretty large day to do at 150km and the morning wasn't as fast as I had hoped. At least half of the ride I had a slight tail wind which seems to make all the difference and I cruised my way to a campground past Blind River. Despite being a larger distance today I only felt slightly punched by the end of it and got to the campground by 3:30 with groceries in hand. That at least gave me several hours to lazily shower, set up camp, cook, clean, and relax. I'm having a debate with myself if I want to stick with my plan for tomorrow and do an easier day, do one as long as today, or do a stupid long one. I guess it will depend on how the wind is feeling and if my legs feel like crushing another highway or not. I should really just stick to my original plan but I'm so close to arriving at my parents I almost want to do it in two monstrous days instead of three sensible ones. We'll see how this all plays out tomorrow.
