Day 47: Friday, 6 July, 1984

Got up when Ihor did. He left for work and I had a shower and wrote some postcards and ate breakfast. Packed up and left. Got away about 10 a.m.

I rode pretty steadily all day. Bought a bit of food in Schreiber.

It was quite a tough day. Lots of hills. However, I still managed to push over 160 km. Now I only have to average 155 till Waterloo area.

The road is not as bad as I thought. Long sections of it have shoulders and there isn't as much traffic as I expected. There was on the section where Hwy 11 and Hwy 17 were the same road. The road doesn't follow the shore very closely--that's why there are so many hills (56k JPEG image).
