Update to Day 6 (Auburn)

Rockefeller Road, up the east side of Owasco Lake, is a VERY nice alternative to the state routes. It's so named because John D. Rockefeller's boyhood home is on it. Left Moravia around 10:50, arrived at campsite in Emerson Park around 12:15. It really didn't seem like that hard a ride, despite the hills, and I feel pretty good. I'm sure the rest day didn't hurt. All set up, and snacks today were not all that great, so John and I biked into downtown and had very good burgers at Daut's Tavern on Genesee Street. About another 5-6 miles R/T. Chicken BBQ again tonight, then a wild party with free beer.
(LATER) Got sucked into a silly "Bon Ton Idol" contest, as an unwilling member of the "Bon Ton 2005 Glee Club". We were out of our league talent-wise, and it felt pretty stupid to be up there, but it was all in good fun. One beer, in bed by 9:00.

The numbers:
68.26 miles, plus lunch
Rolling time: 4:56:18
Elapsed time: ~6 hours
Average: 13.8 mph
Max: 44 mph (!)
