昨日はそこらに転がっている木の枝を拾って火を起こし、ホットドッグを食べました!

そしてテントで一泊。ちなみにここはキャンプ場なので1箇所のエリアで一泊$17。

 

Yesterday we made fire with the wild woods and cooked hotdogs for our dinner:) then tented at the camp. The place we stayed is a camping site so we had to pay $17 for a night per campsite.

 

今朝はコーヒーを飲みながら今日のルートを確認し、泊まる場所確保のため、WarmShower.Orgというアプリで片っ端から行き先のエリアにいる方々に連絡!

 

This morning we had some coffee and discussed our route for today and more importantly, where to stay.

We heard from our friend Tara saying there is a great app called “WarmShowers.Org”

WarmShowers.Orgというのはサイクリストたちのサイクリストたちによるサイクリストのためのアプリでございます!

 

WarmShowers.Org is an app of the cyclists, by the cyclists, for the cyclists!!

どういうことかと言いますと、泊まる場所を探すアプリなのですが、アプリを使う人は自転車で旅をしていることが条件となります。なので泊める側も自転車好きのサイクリスト。

家にいる時はホストとして旅人を迎える側になり、旅に出る時は旅人として、泊まらせてくださいとお願いするアプリ。

アプリ自体も募金で成り立っているアプリなのでお金は一切かからないという素敵なアプリ。

 

What it means is that you can search for a place to stay over night through this app. However, rule on this app is you have to be a cyclist. So when you are at home,you become a host and help people stay at your home. When you are a traveler, you look for people in the area who is also using this app to ask them if you can stay there or not. 

This Warmshowers.org is a free app and it’s running by people’s donation so you don’t have to pay for any fee to use this app. Isn’t it pretty amazing?

 

ってなわけで、泊まり先はまだ決まってないけどDURHAM(ドゥーラム)NHに向けて出発じゃあ!!

Already! We haven’t figure out where we are going to end up staying but start heading to DURHAM, NH!!!!

今日進んだ距離は50マイル!約48kmでございます!昨日は28マイルだから約45km!

MA(マサチューセッツ州)からNH(ニューハンプシャー州)に突入しました!

 

昨日より訛ってた体が戻ってきた感があり今日は山の上り降りが多かったですがなんとかなりました!

どうせこの先箱根の旧1号線や名張の165号線や熊本のミルクロードのような山々にぶつかるんだろうしこんなとこでバテててたまるかー!

チャビーで乗り越えたんだ行けるぜバイセコー!

そんなハイテンションで今日はやり過ごしました。

Jayはまだ今回の旅が初の長旅になるのできつそうでしたが、お互いが健康を保てるスピードでやってこうと思います!

 

Today we went for just about 48miles!

Yesterday was around 28miles!

Now we are not in MA anymore but in NH!!

 

Today I felt a lot better than yesterday about pedaling my bicycle. I wasn’t riding a bicycle as much as I used to ride in Tokyo for about 10days ago. So those muscles I made with the UBER EATS felt like needed to be warm up again. I guess it’s coming back little by little.

Today we had a lots of hills and up & downs were little tough. However it’s nothing like I did  compare to those Japanese mountains such as Mt. Hakone, mountains at Mie(rd 165) or Milk Road at Kumamoto. I’m sure those kinds of mountains are coming up at some point so I can’t say today was hard. Although I know I can do this with the bicycle I’m on right now because I did it with this bike!! And that gives me confident and make me go through for most of the hills.

 

Jay seemed like having a fun & really hard time for those hills and miles we went today.

This is going to be his first big tour on his bike so it will take a little time to get used to it for sure. 

We will travel safely and put less stress on our muscles so that neither of us will get injured seriously. Eventually,,, when we get used to it,,, that’s the time we will go crazy about miles and mountains hahaha!!!

とりあえず目的地の途中でWarmShowers.Orgの繋がりで今晩泊めて頂けることになったので一安心。

当日連絡でも受け入れてくれてありがとうございます(><)

助かりました!

今日は携帯類全て充電。

明日に備えて休みます。

 

それではまた!

 

Lucky enough, we got a place to stay for a night through the WarmShowers App.  

Thank you for letting us stay for such short notice! You saved us ;)

 

Thank you so much to the app too for connecting us to the wonderful family!

 

Today, we are charging our phones, cameras, portable chargers, etc.

 

And now, I’m about to get rest for tomorrow.

 

See you next time!
