    Iowa is NOT flat.
    We left the campsite in the morning to meet John in Stockton, where the farm he is staying this summer is. It was a cool ride along the Mississippi river. Had a flat as we left the campsite, so I bought a new tire later that, Deutsch qualitat! Since we were going to meet John in the evening, we asked him to take our bags in his car. It was great riding without them! We cycled 170km (105 miles): it was long and hard, especially the last few miles on ...

    We've been back a couple of days now and are starting to get reoriented to the time difference. Trying to stay awake past 8 P.M. is still a challenge--it still feels like 2 A.M.

    We departed Wichita this morning continuing north on Interstate 35 towards Kansas City and eventually arrived to Iowa for my first ever visit to the Hawkeye State as it's known. But I soon found that it is really all about the corn here: miles and miles of perfectly laid out cornfields in a beautiful deep green color - very pleasing to see driving down the road at 75 MPH.

    We arrived in West Des Moines about 5pm to ...

    Can't seem to get going going. Waiting for a fax then we found another flat tire on the tractor. Have to wait forever in freezing tire shop for them to put a new one on. Poor Jp is exhausted. We don't get on the road until about noon. We drive for ...
