danceThe morning began with an Interpretive Bike Cover Dance by Ad with an assist by the ever present wind. Then it was back to I-90 East, bye bye Sioux Falls. Miles after mile, corn fields lined either side of the highway. Crop dusters wheeled about like dragonflies, flying in low over the fields and then zooming straight up into the cloudless sky.

The travel was easy—pleasant. Jackets were in order for most of the morning. The aroma in the air prompted new suggestion for a Calvin Klein perfume/cologne line...Eau de Farm: Available in Cow, Pig, Sweet Feed, Barnyard, Hay and Unidentified Eeew. It was flat and it went on and on and on and on and on. Through Minnesota and out the other side.

Beware rural exits where you can’t see the service station from the interstate.

A sign indicated we were riding into a Road Paint Test Zone.  There were all these lines, yellow, white, and orangey painted perpendicular to the direction of traffic. It was like riding over a large Bridget Reilly Op Art painting.

Road Signs:
Agriculture: The Backbone of America
Spam Museum
Road Paint Test Area
