Thoughts about motorcycles, tools that work (or don't), travel, and occasionally politics. Places I've gone, routes that were special, and food I've found along the way.
And, thankfully, not too much of any of it.

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.
