Biking Across America with WE ADD UP - Day 26: Storms

This post is one in a series of video blogs about biking across America with WE ADD UP to raise awareness about how to stop global warming. Check out more posts in this series here.

Truth be known, by the time we had biked to Wyoming, there were several times along the way where Carson was on the verge of pressing the bike trip's red abort button. Day 26, outside Dubois, WY was no exception. The conditions generally had not wanted to cooperate. Through 50 miles on this day, the goings were great. The scenery was beginning to change and become the sweeping landscapes we often see on a postcard. The things short notes were made of, however, quickly changed. First came the darkening clouds, then lightning bolts that surrounded causing Eric to take cover in a thicket of trees, then the hail... after it cleared, Carson returned to the bike to find 40+ mph headwinds and eventual driving rains. About 6 miles from Dubois, a man in a truck pulled up and offered a ride. Mercy at last!
