One of the things I can not understand is once I get away from the Dubuque area, and out in the country, often I don't see anyone else out here. It is just to beautiful, and I think there should be a few more 1000 people enjoying. Now when it is zero degrees and snowing, perhaps then I can understand why I am the only one out here.
I stopped at the "cement slab cafe" I was thinking of calling the Better Business Bureau regarding insects and rodents I sometimes see. But they had home made chocolate chip cookies on the menu today, so all is forgiven.
Wind kept getting stronger out here, I am afraid there is more violent storms coming tonight and tomorrow. I will ride tomorrow if it is raining, but thunderstorms, hail, and strong winds I might have an issue with.
I am suffering from the serious disease AFS. Otherwise known as "Always forgetting something"
Seems there is always something. Today I forgot to bring a sweatband, and my eyes were burning as I tried to keep up with the sweat running in my eyes using my bicycling gloves to wipe my forehead.
Rode myself into this mud hole, trying to find away to dry land, I ended up flopping over and actually caught myself with my arm without going total body into the slime, shoes and side were full of mud, but I was 4 miles from home and the end of today's journey.
Cheers and happy day to ya.
