570 miles from St. Louis lands us in North Sioux City, South Dakota. That’s just across the border from Sioux City Iowa.
The ride was much easier than the trip from Florida to St. Louis… at least for me. The weather was actually great. It was cloudy and overcast at 5:10 am this morning when we left St. Louis. I was so cool, I quickly donned a jacket to supplement the long sleeve shirt I was wearing from the get-go. It slowly cleard and warmed up as we crossed Missouri heading towards Kansas City. By the time we haded noth of KC on I-29 I was in a T-Shirt (sunscreen applied, Mom). It was a great ride. I really enjoyed listening to the radio (on my Ultra Classic) as I traversed the roads of northern Missouuri, Iowa and Nebraska, and into South Dakota.
I could have rode farther, but our leader, Mel (of Mel’s Angels) was pooped and wanted to call it a night. So we checked into a Hampton Inn and found a nearby restaurant and had a good meal. Then it was back to the hotel where I checked email and made a few posts on the high speed internet connection (obviously).
I’ll report again the next time I have access. Hopefully with some pictures I took.
