Trip Log

Notes Actions
Hills and hills and heat and heat. The heat wave seems to be following us around. High of 32 today, and temps above 30 expected for the next few days as well. Oy. The good news is that we rode quite a bit on a secondary highway today and neither of us was too perturbed by it. Brent is vexed by a lack of a decent shoulder (this road has either no shoulder or a sidewalk, so alternating between vexatious and fine), and I am vexed by traffic zooming past. There is some of that, to be sure, but Croatian drivers seem singularly disinterested in running us down. They tend to give us lots of space, and they often slow down and proceed past with caution. A lot of them give us "hello honks", unlike the "get off my f*&#ing road or I'll kill you" honks we get from Alberta drivers.
