Brandy had two young girls so I passed on the play tent and hope they get some fun out of it.
I tried to cycle on the local cycle path by the river but it is too gravelly for my road tires so I did a short walk along it instead. I also swam and visited the local craft shop. They had lots of lovely things but I don't need more to carry.
Some pictures from Cambridge are below including the British telephone box (outside another closed business sadly) and the 'before I die' board. I thought of what I would write and realised my number one ambition was to procure a new tent and cycle across Oregon to the Pacific. That's my dream for the minute, it's hard to think beyond this fantastic trip. Although I also would not mind beating Graeme at halo.
I met some old friends in the afternoon. Well 5 weeks old anyway. I have a odd time perspective on this trip - England seems another lifetime away. They are George from Virginia and Alex from Belgium who I met back in Illinois/ Missouri. The three of us agreed to roll out at 6 tomorrow and go through Hell's Canyon to Halfway. Temperatures are forecast at 39C so I am expecting the canyon to live up to its name. We will be rewarded by crossing into another state and by a traditional small town America 4th July celebration with parade, BBQ, live music and of course fireworks. The thought of that will keep me going!
