I woke up early and started packing up camp just as the park was waking up for the day. I was on the road by 7:30 and it was only a few hours ride to Bardstown.
When I arrived in town I was feeling pretty grungy. I hadn't showered in two days and all of my riding clothes had already been worn twice, if not three times. I had considered staying in town in the Kentucky Home State Park, and I pulled into the park to look at the campgrounds. Seeing a shower facility ready and waiting for me, I figured they wouldn't mind if I got cleaned up before I made my decision to stay or not. Getting clean made me feel like a new man, so then I headed back into town for lunch and to look around.
Bardstown has a nice little Civil War museum so I spent a few hours looking at their displays and artifacts, then I decided to stay in town for the night so that I could wash my clothes and recharge my batteries. That meant leaving this as a low mileage day, but Bardstown is the biggest town I will pass through until I'm a hundred miles into Illinois.
As I was getting my things ready for the morning I noticed another broken spoke. I'm not sure when this one broke, as I never felt it and didn't experience any problems during the day. I'm going to fix this one as well, but I guess I will have to do something more permanent when I get to Carbondale.
