Day 55: Spent the morning getting things ready for our arrival in the Lone Star State. Crossed the Texas border late afternoon, rolling into the town of Paris 28 miles later. Rode in the 30s yet again today. Whatever happened to that warm Texas weather? The state, of course, is governed by Rick “Oops” Perry, a prominent Keystone XL booster. Should make for an interesting final two weeks of the ride.
