Texarkana to New Boston, TX

After a comfy night in our 6 x 3 ft. roomette on the “Texas Eagle” from Chicago to Texarkana, we finally began the real deal–cycling. We felt right at home here in TX–skies were gray, a north wind was blowing, and the temperature was 40. Unlike the home terrain, this was nearly flat, so the 25 miles to New Boston was a breeze. (The only alternative was to do 85 miles to Broken Bow into the north wind…)
