Well the trees are now behind us. The weather has been very good to us for the entire trip. Cool enough in the morning that many folks are wearing jackets at the ride start. Sunny and almost cloudless during the day with the highs reaching the high 60's and low 70's.
The concerns expressed about riding on the I-80 have reduced somewhat. In most cases the shoulder of the has been a nice surface to ride on with debris that needs to be avoided. Most of the debris is truck tires that have ripped themselves apart.
I have been pleasantly surprised by the courtesy shown to us by the truck divers. More often than not, an upcoming truck will more into the passing lane to place some distance between us and them
