Day 18: Riverton,WY to Casper, WY - 120 miles with 2,660' of climbing

Today's ride started out with 45 miles of slighty uphill grade. There were very few towns along the way and other than an occassional group of pronghorn antelope and a brief stop at Hell's Half Acre there was little to look at. We passed the time looking for roadside souvenirs (license plates) as we pedaled across 120 miles of coma inducing topography and arrived in Casper, the oil city, around 3:30. Following dinner most of us cleaned our bikes and lubed or replaced our chains for the miles to come.

Roadkills thus far: 132
Flats: 0
Hurts: Sore quads and ligaments around the knees. After 1,316 miles and over 45,000' of climbing tomorrow is a welcome day off.
