This first day on the Saejae trail hasn't been horrible, but it's taken something out of me. I'm 3 km from today's destination, and I'm finally taking my first real stop at a hyugaeso, i.e., a rest area. This particular rest area has a gas station, restaurant, convenience store, and even an inn devoted to bikers. I'm sorely tempted to simply stop here, but I'm only three kilometers away from my goal. And there will be plenty of inns in town.
Tons of photos taken, but today, I was more interested in making tracks than in stopping occasionally and doing periodic photo uploads. Expect images soon.
