Day 22 Tunnel Hill to Chester 85 miles


After a fantastic breakfast with the Stachowiak family we headed off to meet Dixie , a freelance reporter who was very interested in our trip and why we were doing it,she was also interested in what we thought of the local Americans we had met and what new foods we had experianced,nice lady been a newspaper reporter for over 50 years.Lots of hills again until we went through the Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge when it flattened out a bit . At Myrphysboro we took the Mississippi Leve route that was 35 miles of very flat roads which eventually brought us out next to the river in Chester,but as per usual the final 2 miles into Chester was a long uphill drag.

For those who read our blog and are a bit concerned that i seem to be wearing either a dark or light colour shirt in most of the photos and Gerry is wearing either a yellow or grey shirt this is because we only have 2 cycling shirts each but rest assured we do wash them on a regular bssis.

  1. Looking great lads

  2. Great going lads, you are putting in great miles these days so i can’t keep track of where you are 🙂 it’s heartwarming to see the reception you are getting os far. next into Indian country see how you can charm them.
    get to be getting a few pics of you both together and of the people you meet.

  3. I’d like to read Dixie’s article. Have another great week!

  4. Good stuff guys, feel reassured about the washing of the shirts.

    • me too,(feel reassured I mean) perhaps you could get a new set each for the second half of cycle. Just make a change for the photos.
