Day 5 ✅ Torrey - Panguitch UT
Today: 73 miles.
Total: 433 miles.

I thought yesterday was bad.... today started with forgetting water bottles. Then a wind storm. Happens to be trash day here, wind blew a trash can which hit my front wheel and knocked me off. I then fell into a ditch from the wind. 2nd fall. At a construction stop a family offered me a ride in a different direction. We went north for 40 miles. Still the same mileage for the day from the drop point.

In the afternoon, I got a puncture and a broken spoke. Thank you to the gentleman who stopped to help me fix it.

This is insanely difficult. Way underestimated this trip. Will finish though.
