The terrain is still hard, but Peter and Janos are feeling better as the days pass. They are coping with the physical challenges easier than at the beginning of the trip.
Today they arrived to Kentucky. Also, today they passed the first 1000 mile “mile stone” of the trip. See Peter’s speedometer below.
The brothers say everywhere they go, people are very nice to them. They are helpful when the boys ask for directions, or would even offer directions without being asked. People shout “Good luck!” from their cars (except sometimes when they shout other things). Locals most often just sit on their porches in chairs set in a row, and shout “Have a good day!” to anyone who passes by.
Tonight they had put up their tent in the yard of a church. The bicycle map says it’s ok, and the locals confirmed. As they settled down, a dog joined them. The boys had to be careful, since they didn’t want to share their dinner with him. Later the dog brought a friend, and they stayed around all night. Peter needs to buy a new helmet ASAP.
