Alright. Time to keep going! I’ve learned in order to recover appropriately and quickly, you need some proper sleep. We were staying a ways away from where I ended yesterday in Malad City, Idaho, that I got a little bit of a later start, but not too much. 7:50am and super cold at 55°F.
I thought it’d warm up fast…but it was no more than 65°F the whole day. And windy too. Bugs kept hitting me (face, legs, jersey, etc) like roadkill. Dragonflies, flies, beetles, butterflies, you name it. But I have to admit that the ride, though hilly, was very pretty. Great scenery.
Sadly, Uni started giving out again and made it difficult to ride. Luckily I made it to Pocatello, Idaho by 3:45pm after 52 miles. We stayed nearby at a good friend’s house. They were so awesome (just like all the others we’ve stayed with thus far) and gave great hospitality. You rock Halls!
We tried to put our new frame on…but soon came to realize it was the wrong size. Dang it! The frame was too wide to fit onto the wheel bearings, and also the seat post has a bigger diameter on the new frame. Things weren’t looking so good. We might have to overnight ship a new unicycle altogether. But we’re going to keep going!

The One Wheel Man started riding a 20-inch unicycle at the age of 15. He wanted to be a clown since he’d been doing so well at pantomiming.
