Day 7: Baroil to Lander Wy -100.37 miles

I  decided to set my alarm and get an early start this morning. It was overcast and breezy, and a couple miles past Muddy Gap it started to sprinkle. As I was putting on my rain gear at Split Rock Historic Site, another cyclist rode by and I worked hard to catch up.  I spent the rest of the day riding with Joel, a software engineer from Denver who recently quit his job and is riding to Coeur D’alene, ID to compete in an ironman before starting his own company.  The good conversation distracted me from the miles, and before I knew it we were only 40 miles (of mostly downhill!) to Lander. Joel got ahead of me on the last few miles, and I slowly cruised my way in to town because I ran out of legs. Tonight I’m staying with more wonderful warmshowers people and will likely take a rest day tomorrow.
