Turning 2000

Amazing day. I got past the flooding in Ames IA by going north to a 2-lane country road. Had to sleep in the truck. The beauty of the farm land was so great that I stayed on it to the end. Then I took US30 instead of going back to I-80. It may have cost me a couple of hours extra driving but it was worth it.
The road runs next to the Union Pacific main line so I go a 75 car freight train every 15 minutes.
Lots of rain and thunder storms all around me but I threaded the needle between them and stayed dry.
