Pumpkin, TX to Silsbee, TX (86.5 miles)

Another great day of riding. We started off with a great big breakfast of eggs, potatoes, biscuits, gravy, bacon, grits etc. Such perfect fuel for cycling. The terrain has become flat as a pancake (well maybe a lumpy pancake). Everything is lush and green which is a welcome change after weeks in the Texas deserts. The only problem is the increase in dogs chasing us. I'm starting to lose my voice from screaming at them to scare them off. Any suggestions from fellow cyclists/runners? I hear the problem gets worse the deeper into the south you get...

Tonight we are camping at an RV park under a pavilion as there are more storm warnings. We had to order pizza delivery for dinner as the grocery store in town lost power today and was closed.

If all goes well tomorrow, this will be our last night in Texas!!!
