Ride Across the USA: 7/24/10 -- W of Leroy, MI to E of Clare -- 60 mi/ 2431 total

This is what is looked like a lot of ride in Michigan. See the nice road? Don't be misled as it was one of the few good ones -- we have rated Michigan's county roads as the worst of the trip.

Raining b/4 we got up so decided to see what radar said. Didn't look good so waited till 8 to see if we could stay another night. We couldn't w/o moving to a different site so that made the decision for us. Decided to do laundry as it was nice and close. Break camp, K gets med refilled and we head up the road to Luther. As we turn off onto the county road, the gas gauge registers on the red. Well, nuts. Get to Luther, no station, so we continue on knowing there is a 4-lane somewhere up ahead. We found one, everyone breathed a sigh of relief, J and H dropped us off at the 4-lane, west of Leroy. By now it is 1:30 and we are just starting the ride for the day. This is pretty country but it has a different "feel" than Wisconsin did. So many trees, that there was really nothing to see. Had 5 miles of construction from Farwell to Clare that was a little close at times, got lost getting to the campground but once there we do have electricity and showers. Good deal!
