Day 3 - Through Monticello

Today we woke up with aching bodies. We had anticipated that day three would be a tough one. Luckily Abe and I were accompanied by our camp friend Marlee who decided to come join us for a day. It was great having a third person there not only to help share the load but also for moral support.

We started the day 5 miles outside Monticello. The first half of the day we saw some rain, but it tapered off by the time we made it in to town. We were able to take a nice river path for a while which was refreshing from our usual road travel. Abe and I were dragging in the morning, but had a second wind after lunch partially due to some weird energy shot that Marlee brought along. We travelled a total of 13.3 miles and are thinking St. Cloud may be about 2 days away!

9pm and we are both more exhausted than we've been in a long time. Time to get a good night sleep. Our buddy Alex Vilano will be picking us up in the morning. Haven't seen him in a while so that should be a treat.

Nothin' to it, but to do it.
