Headwest 2009 Day 3

Iowa City, Iowa to Wayne, Nebraska is now complete as well. It was good to see that Heather was bright eyed and ready to go after dinner last night. Today brought us a whole lot of wind and some awesome scenery! We got lucky once again and the rain stopped just as we were finishing breakfast and it was dry the whole rest of the day. We got to see a whole lot of corn again today and also several beautiful power windmills. They were quite a sight to see. We also went right by the Iowa Speedway which was in the middle of nowhere but there was quite a crowd gathered there today.

During our leg towards Omaha I couldn't take it anymore and had to beg for a pit stop. Apparently I wasn't the only one that needed one because there was a line running towards the trees which ironically enough was lining a cornfield of all things! I can honestly say that even with all of the travelling I have done, nothing compares to driving across this great country and seeing it for all of its vastness. It's quite impressive.

It was great to have Kim and Julie join us after Dave and Mike picked them up at the airport. Marilyne continues to impress everybody with her riding skills. Maybe one day she can teach all of us guys how to ride. We had a great ride up towards Wayne where we met up with Perry's old friend Brian who took us to his house for hamburgers and hot dogs. It was a great time relaxing and sharing stories. I don't know quite why, but Mike was reserved this evening. Then Perry took us to where we were all going to stay the next two nights and everyone here has been very gracious in welcoming us into their homes. Tomorrow is a day of rest and taking in the Wayne county fair. It should be a great time.

Once again here is the track for today.
