Well, after a very rough 83 miles of riding, the Musher and Helen (after a shower smells like cookies again) Handler were happy to be in Perry
They took advantage of the local foods by sampling a gigantic pork chop from the famous Mr. Pork Chop
|Stop taunting me with the tasty foods|
The next day, off again early for the next stage
Thanks to the night's storms, it was a bit foggy but a lot cooler than yesterday. Of course, there were the obligatory traffic jams
The Sag Wagon was feeling a bit of the Iowa heat and road dirt, but turning dirt into lemons... or something... Shelly RAGBRAI Minion made the best of it
Today the Musher and Helen, and Shelly Minion in the sag wagon made for Des Moines.
The Musher pondered: "I can't decide whether Ragbrai is more like spawning salmon or migrating caribou....basically just a continuous flow of cyclists that you just break off of or join into as whim decides!!!!! It is truly a cool experience!!!"
|The spawning caribou migrating or something|
And a good time is still being had by all
