I met the fellas for lunch and headed off again to find more construction. Only this time, I was caught behind "sweepers" or giant machines that kick up clouds of dust. I had to keep a good 50 yards between us, otherwise I'd suffocate in the ominous cloud of now-flying sediments. The major problem was that these infernal machines inched along at a crawl and I couldn't pass them. The Brits somehow got past them and found themselves waiting for me in the cool confines of a local pool for at least an hour. I finally arrived and we washed up, pitched our tents outside the pool area, and headed into town for laundry/food.
I'm looking forward to a nice morning ride into Fair Grove for breakfast. We've decided it best to sleep in for a few hours and catch up on some much needed sleep. I've been functioning well on an average of 6-7 hours of sleep, but it will be nice to have those extra hours... I'm sure they'll go a long way.
