Two days all about driving and quite a bit of it in the rain. The 275 mile drive across Iowa, literally a straight line due west on Hwy 20, was under a big black shifting cloud changing from mist to rain to a few bright spots to heavy foreboding gloom again.

I think we will hit more traffic here on in and also less distance between towns and cities. When I look at the map it would seem that will be the case as we leave the Mount Rushmore state.
Let's see, Iowa makes our seventh state this trip.
