Day 63 - Huntington to Broughton, Woodbridge Campground, 09.13.2015

Leaving the town of Huntington after a good night's sleep (YMCA and a good meal let me sleep for over 8 hours), I found out in the course of the day that reducing your speed (somehow I tend to allways push too much) and increasing my cadence did the job: my legs didn't hurt in the evening and I reached a campsite in good state and with enough energy for a nice chat with Berry and Nancy. Berry is a bow hunter which means that he stays up all night to shoot a deer with an arrow. He really enjoys the wait the quietness and the suspense of stealthy way of hunting. A hunt in which the prey is driven out into the open would never be to his taste. I have met quite a few hunters on my trip but this was new to me. Earlier, in Monroeville, I had once again seen a rally of antique cars and everyone seemed to have a great time when the prizes were announced. Unfrtunately this town had neither a campground nor a motel and the only B&B was closed for the weekend so I had to go on south east, the wrong direction, to Broughton but, as mentioned,  met nice people there...

Unfortunately the sun was against me and when I tried to get a better angle for the light I accidentally touched the electrical fence - that really hurt and I sat on my bum for ten minutes counting my bones and my heartbeats ...

Monroeville has a long tradition of horse racing.

Berry and Nancy are still holding out - but it's only an hour's drive to their real home ...
