Day 5

Up at 3:30 and on the road at 7:00.
Chilly start in the morning ended up warming up for a beautiful day for 432 miles of riding.
You can see for a LONG way on I-29 in Iowa and we could see in the distance on the right and left hand side of the road it was pouring but we never got wet again to day.
Met some real nice people at rest stops and gas stations etc.
A couple from OK want us to stop by when we go through so they can buy us dinner and even offered to let us spend the night. They are a real nice couple about our age.
We are now in Mitchell, South Dakota about 300 miles from Sturgis.
The photo of the gal with the dogs Albert took for ERICA. :o) She loves animals!
The last two photos were taken at the first rest stop in SD where we meet another nice couple from Buffalo, NY and they are actually pretty much taking the same route as we are.
Another day of high mileage but it doesn't take long to rack up the miles when the speed limits are 70 to 75 and everyone is driving 80 to 90.
Another great day!
If I ever find time, I will be uploading a bunch of photos to my photo site. It is too many to add here on the blog.

  3. I'll try again - for some reason once I post a blog can never do another one - I just tried using anonymous - I was missing something...

    Following your ride - sure sounds wonderful - have fun and be safe...

  4. Okay, think I figured it out - after I select a profile even if it's anonymous, I have to click on 'Preview' first then 'Post Comment' and it goes through...

    I'm always looking for shortcuts and Susie, I hate manuals, laughing...
