Woke up this morning listening to thunder and rain in Fayette, Mo. It was pouring rain when I finally left Fayette.  Mary's hubby left before I woke up and I was unable to say thank you and good bye to him.  Mary made me a very healthy breakfast.  Six egg whites with cheicken breast and cheese.

I tried to wait as long as I could to see if the rain would stop...It did not!!!  At 930am I decided to put on my rain gear and face the rain head on!!

It was nice ride out of Fayette.  About 75 miles of two lane road in the pouring rain.  It was a fun ride still maintaining 60-65 mph.  It was a pretty amazing ride even in the rain.  I can only imagine how much more awesome it would have been if it werent raining.  Check out the pics.

It rained hard for the first three hours of todays ride.  Unforntunatly my feet got soaked and remained soaked through out the rest of the day.  After ten hours of riding and finally arriving at Mrs. Haines house, I was able to take my boots off and take a hot shower...Thanks Mrs Haines!!!

After the rained stopped it was a very long but for the most part a pleasent ride. 577 miles today.  I was pretty tired after the 400th mile. 

It was gloomy all day through out the entire rid, but enjoyed it nontheless.

After about ten hours of riding, I arrived into Appleton, Wi at about 730pm.  Mrs. Haines had dinner warmed and ready.  It was soooo good!!  After dinner she took me over to Renee's house for a visit with her and her family.

Tomorrow I will take off about 7am to try and get to the Harley Davidson museum before opening at 9am.  After maybe an hour at the museum, I will head out toward Cleveland.
