We biked fast to stay warm, but the wind today was whipping from the northwest and kept us cold. We dove into a convenience store for warm coffee.
And stopped again to warm up at one of the many Casey's Convenience stores. We typically just hang out in the middle and chat it up with some locals.
Kept on biking, passing heavy farm machinery and foul smelling pig farms. Eventually, we were excited to find a bike path that got us off the busy road with semi-trucks.
But then it led us astray and we ended up on another crap gravel road. :(
We biked to Luther College around the corner from the bike shop to attack their dining hall. The charge was $9.95 a person for amazing all-you-can-eat food. There were salad bars with locally grown greens, BBQ chicken, made to order pastas, and a huge dessert bar! We ate like kings.
Now off to the local campground, Pulpit Rock State Park, for a good nights sleep. It will be in the low 50s tonight, so we will have to bundle up.
Here's Don chatting on the phone and Justin texting before bed.
