July 28 - Toledo
Today was a simple day on the road. I was happy to be back on the crew riding in a van. I did notice a lot of things that I had never noticed before riding though. For instance how awful the road was for most of the ride.
Big Mike did his ride-a-long today. He made it 42 of the 55 mile day before he couldn't go any farther. It was disappointing because the whole team wanted to make sure he finished, but he was concerned about his safety if he continued.
We arrived at the University of Toledo Pi Kapp "house." It is in a Greek village so it is a university owned cookie cutter complex. It was a very nice facility, though it was kinda weird that the other half of the building was the Pi Kappa Alpha house. We had lunch at the house and then headed to the dorms where we were staying the night.
Our friendship visit was at the Sunshine Foundation. We broke into groups, and my group visited the therapy horses. It was really cool, some of the horses were enormous!
We then went to dinner at Connor's house which was a steak dinner. We also got our laundry done there for free which was awesome!
