Hartville to Alley Springs 67 miles

The trip from Springfield back to Hartford took about an hour.  Dave and Pete left on their bikes about 8:30 AM.
Did we mention hills?  How about heat?  To set up a tent in 100 degree heat after negotiating the hills is kinda the pits.  But we found a great camp ground at the Ozark National Scenic Riverways.  This was a national park with hot showers, grassy sites, and the Jacks Fork River to swim in.  We sorta cooled off but the heat continued all night.
Micky D's is a favorite blog spot.
Pete working on his broken spoke in Sommersville MO.
Actually we drove 14 miles ahead to get to this campsite.  We have arrived in Sommersville with Dave's bike on the back of the car because he had a flat.  Pete came along and caught up with us there.  He discovered a broken spoke.  We used the gazebo in the middle of the town park as a repair shop.  Fortunately Dave had a supply of spokes and they figured out how replace it.  The good news is the wheel was not out of round.  Sommersville had no lodging, so we drove ahead to Alley Springs.
