    Great route. Obnoxious guy from Chicago at registration, but I ended up not seeing him to run him in the ditch. I felt good all weekend. They didn't have the right lunch at the stop on Sunday. By that I mean, they didn't have the sandwiches with meat. The vendor didn't show up. They did have some veggie sandwiches with bean sprouts and tofu, so I scarfed one down, hippie named myself "sun phase" and hit the road. :D Fun trip though.

    I'm pretty sure its part of a convection current. The cool air is falling, hitting the ground and spreading while warmer air is rising.

    The wind always seems to follow me too. You're not the only one. I had a windy ride today in the Finger Lakes (NY) with Rob.

    did you go through Bloomington? I like that part of IN.
