I didn't sleep well last night because a bunch of raccoons -- at least three -- were making a ruckus right outside my tent. I never heard such noises! The Dog Dazer was moderately effective at quieting them down for a few minutes at a time.
I was really really tired all day today, but the nearest campground was south of Spring Valley, which in turn is southwest of Xenia. I originally planned to go northwest from this morning's camp -- all the roads here are diagonal for some reason -- and then follow the bike trails sothwest through Xenia and Spring Valley to the campground. But as the hours went by faster than the miles, I shortened my route first to cut out most of the bike trail, then to omit Xenia as well. Too bad; I would have liked to visit a midsized town with a funny name and a bike trail running through it. Maybe some other time.
Got to the campground and found the proprietor had left for the night. Without her help to find the "primitive" campsites, I wound up at a site intended for an RV. This wouldn't be a problem -- it's grassy, unlike the last time this happened -- except that there's a security light pointed right at my tent. I'm tired enough I think I can sleep through it!
