Did some shopping, did some exploring near Rochester and spent some of the hottest part of the day in the movie theater watching gaurdians of the galaxy, good flick. Got home and did the ALS ice bucket challenge
It rained during the night and morning but race started about 11:30, wow a fast track under cloudy skies, track record runs.
Heading to St Louis to see the arch and possibly an ironbutt attempt
Left Preston at 1:37 pm
Rode 129 miles until my first stop in Brandon Ia, gas station bathroom wasn’t working but there was one down the street at the park, lady at the station said( it has a flush toilet and everything) rested and had some Pepsi and hit the road.
I was lucky enough to hit downtown St Louis as the Cardnals Brewers game had just ended, completely packed streets, I seen the Arch enough and got out of town, Now I can say I’ve been to St Louis. How come the worst most erratic drivers have their windows completely darkened?
well as you can see I had my photo settings incorrect, I will work on fixing that, Thankfully Marc headed out and met me on my return, we met across from Lansing, was grat to have home with the last hour and a half. I’m glad it worked out and I completed the saddle sore but it’s not all that fun of a way to travel, I enjoy slowing down, stopping to investigate areas and visit with people, sometimes I get to where I don’t want to get off the bike also so I got my share of that. Bike was good, I do love it for an all around do it all machine. I almost didn’t make the 24hour deadline as I underestimated and pissed around at some stops today, I learned a lot for next time, If there is a next time, now that I have had a nap I say I might do it again, I’ve never been to door county!
