We started out the day at breakfast with Deb Porter, then to the cycle shop to pick up Randy's trike.  All was well with the trike, we said our good byes to Deb and headed west on highway 94!  We got through Minnesota and I think we saw most of their 10,000 lakes off route 94!  It's a beautiful state.  Then we got into North Dakota and we are sure this is the windiest place on earth!  We were afraid we were going to loose our helmets or loose our seat on the bike - felt like it was going to blow us off of it!  I don't know how the guys kept the bike on the road.  

We were all looking for todo from the Wizard of Oz - we were sure we were close to Kansas!  Other than the wind, the weather was beautiful - sunny and in the 80's. We're afraid we may have rain tomorrow.

Tomorrow we hope to make it to Billings Montana if all goes well.

Hope all is well at home.  Stay tuned for more adventures with the Hartzler's and Porter's.

Sandy, Tom, Linda and Randy

You are making some good time and mileage. Have shared your blog with a co-worker - she and her husband are considering renting a trike to try out. Be safe and keep the message coming.

Great hearing and talking to all of you last night. I was sitting on the deck enjoying the evening and some margaritas when you called. "Keep on triken!"
