Today started out with really beautiful waether.  I slept in until about 10am.  I jumped right back onto US 80.  Check out some of the pics of more of the two lane roads I rode.

It was all good until I reached Vickburg!!  It was hot and sunny and I pulled over to rest for a bit and get out of the heat.  I was eating and checking email when I looked out the window and saw that it was pouring rain.  There wasnt a cloud in the sky and it was raining.  I hung there at the restaurant until it stopped raining.

After I thought it was safe to do so, I jumped back on the bike and headed west!  The cloudless sky lasted all of about 30 minutes when all of a sudden the sky opened up and just dumped on me.  I barley made it into a rest stop where I was able to find some shelter.  Check out the pics..

After the rain sort of slowed down I put my rain gear on and headed out.  The rain had only slowed down for a few minutes until it started raining so hard I couldnt see and my bike started to stall while I was going 70mph.  It rained so hard and the wind was blowing so strongly that I was wanted to pull over.

The rain finally stopped.  The sun came out and I just about dried off.  The nice weather was short lived.  It rained again so bad I once again could barley see 50 feet in front of me.

Check out some of the pics I took while I was riding!!!

Tomorrow I plan on visiting the site where Bonnie and Clyde met their fate!!!
