7 MAY 2003: DOWN DAY IN CARTHAGE, MISSOURI
decided to stay here in beautiful, "historic" Carthage, Missouri today. I plan to
drive only to breakfast and a grocery store, then return to my room to post pictures
and my chase report from yesterday, and do some reading. I may even break out some
work of my own and see if I still know how to write. After marathon mileage
(nearly 3000 so far) each day since last Friday, I'm ready for a day like
today, with a setup so marginal and far away that it doesn't makes sense to lose position
for the next day.
