As an aside, I recalculated my plan for the rest of the trip and realized I'm considerably behind schedule. I did a great job of anticipating my pace on the east coast leg, arriving in St. John's one day ahead of schedule, even with taking four unscheduled days off. Right now I'm four days behind schedule for arrival back in Toronto - and that's with taking no more days off, which is unlikely.
Having said that, I'm in no real rush to get back. My only firm deadline is July 22nd based on a previously set engagement, otherwise I can take my time. My only concern at this point is weather. I had a much higher tolerance for bad weather earlier in the trip than I do now. If I get hit with another streak of bad weather it remains to be seen how willing I'll be to keep sacrificing riding days. Hopefully the weather stays on my side and I don't have to find out.
This isn't snow
