Made it to Knoxville, which was an unbelievable drive on the motorways...minus 40 degrees outside, which I think is about 23 below zero New Zealand speak! Matts moms house is surrounded by snow and it is bitterly cold outside.....really really cold!!! Went down to the store a little while ago...its a really small place, so not a lot to do apart from stay inside and keep warm. Its been great to have Matts family together. Tonya stayed with the kids ...
After a delayed train due to 'mechanical reasons' we were on our way to little old Galesburg, Illinois. After arriving close to 6 pm we wandered into town with our packs to find us some accommodation. The closest accommodation was a hotel a ten minute walk from the station so we turned up and took their cheapest room for the night. Now their cheapest room was less than what we paid for hostels we have stayed in and we shared a king ...
... girls who act like they're afraid of clowns VERY LOUDLY and a man in a store who couldn't wrap his head around John not being embarrassed about being a clown. Hah. The folks at the library were really nice and the gas at Casey's was the cheapest we've seen in awhile ($3.49/gal).

... Bad stuff: the gear change lever bar that I tap up/down to change gears snapped off leaving me with only the connector shaft to change gears with. Good thin was that I took the bike to an autobody shop and the guy there drilled a hole in the shaft and put a bolt in so I could change gears. I have also arranged via e-mail with the BMW Dealer in St Louis to fix my bike of Friday.
We drove from Ohio to Crawfordsville Indiana, 271 miles on Thursday the 27th. The next day we arrived in Galesburg at the Campground on Friday and did a little shopping. The next day, Saturday, we visited Patti's father (who is 91) and sister and other family members. While the visit was brief, it was a pleasant day and a nice stop before heading on towards Iowa. Drove 273 miles today and 215 yesterday.
Total miles so far 1933.
