Day 13 - 6/20/16 Scottsville, NY - Day Off

First day off of the trip and I spent it exactly how I wanted: eating donuts, writing, drawing, doing laundry, eating more donuts, all while listening to loads of jazz and Jimmy Buffet.  

It was a real hot day, in the 90's with substantial humidity, a great day to not be riding a bike!  Today reminded me of those do-nothing days off I used to love when I actually had a job.  Just doing the things I love that I don't always have the time or energy to do.  It was nice when Mike and Jess got home though.  

They made another great meal and took me out for ice cream (they're really not much older than me, it just sounds like I'm 8 years old).  I've spent some time today trying to figure out where the hell I'm going tomorrow.  It's less than 100 miles to Niagara Falls so I should be looking at a lot of water by Wednesday afternoon.  The only issue is I'm heading to a pretty crowded area that I've never been to before with no final destination at this point.  I've contacted a few people on Warm Showers with no response just yet but, I just have to be patient.  I'm not terribly worried, things always work themselves out one way or another, good or bad, great or horrible (I'm hoping for good or great).  I would be incredibly na├»ve if I thought this was the only time uncertainty would be hanging over my head.  

Sometimes I'm going to have to start to figure out where I'm going to stop.  It's all part of the fun and excitement and I'm certainly having fun.
