I woke up at my usual time before 6am and saw my last sunrise in Ottawa, Illinois (not the Ottawa in Canada) , peaking over the corn field
I had to make up for lost time so all I did was gas up and continue on my way Westward
my plan was to keep riding into the night to make up for lost time but then I decided to stop for dinner. When I was finished I decided that this wasn't such a good idea and I noticed a hotel across the street so here I stayed for the night and not quite out of Iowa.
I managed to grab the last ground floor room, except that I nearly croaked from all the residue cigarette smoke.
The next day (ie today) I decided to get a really early start and rose with the sun
there is hardly anyone on the road at this hour. Only me and my shadow.
Between yesterday and today I logged over 1,000. miles
and when I noticed this sign I just had to stop for a photo
tonight I am in good company with covered parking. Yesterday breakfast in Chicago and tonight dinner in Denver. I am happy, good fast free WiFi here
