Today was 106 mile day which was flatter so easier cycling. Again overcast, wore arm warmers in the morning as temp was 68.
Main scenery is now corn fields. Lots. Sadly as the corn has grown so high you can't see over the top so the views are always limited.
Mostly uneventful day. Springfield is a large city and was the ...
... s ABSOLUTE favorite- chocolate marshmallow ripple! We ate too much but not all of it, (really, not all of it). A quick trip into the visitor center and off we go! Well with a few more stops... a big sailboat marina, one of the Mississippi River locks, a fantastic Buena Vista photo opportunity, the Nelson Creamery where we bought some cheese curds, (they squeak on our teeth) and dinner in Trempealeau.

We chatted a couple of hrs or so, then off towards the Windy City ...

We find a La Quinta at an outer suburb of St Louis and book online, then head out there. I have mailed work asking for a copy of my license and am hopeful that tomorrow we can get me on as a driver.
