The Music Continues: Another concert and some last minute shopping in Troy, Ohio

The Music Continues: Another concert and some last minute shopping in Troy, Ohio

Great party last night. The band, Higgins-Madewell (http://www.higginsmadewell.com/), is a local favorite and they were phenomenal (MUCH more enjoyable than Nickelback imho, sorry Nickelbackers).

After a week of beautiful sunny weather here the skies abruptly darkened and dumped rain and cold temps on us all day yesterday. Today is overcast and windy. All of this reminded me that I completely forgot to bring my cold weather clothing for this bike tour. It’s been in the 90’s in St. Louis less than two weeks ago and I just didn’t think about it.

I thought I’d learned my lesson last year when we cycled the Katy Trail at the beginning of October. It was cold and rainy that entire week and I was miserably frozen. After we returned home I bought a bunch of cold weather gear in preparation for this year’s trip. But guess where it is right now. Yup. Sitting in my closet back in St. Louis. DOH!

So we made a little shopping trip today to get some gloves, hat, neck gater and some waterproof shoes. I’m all set now.

Weatherman’s predicting rain, rain and rain for the first three days we’ll be on the trail. Hope he’s wrong.

Kevin & Trish's great place in Troy, OH. The tent was for the party but didn't get used much since it was too cold.

The barn/office/garage/guesthouse/partyplace at Trish and Kevin's where we're staying for three days. How sweet is that?!
