Hello Fans, Friends and Family

Sunday, June 13th:  This morning we have a light mist in the air.  I am ready to ride, but Judy is holding back, hoping it will clear up.  We got the motor home ready to move and filled the tank with gas.  It is now 10:30 and the mist has lightened up.  I have my rain gear on as the streets are still wet and it looks as if it could rain some more.  I was right.  I didn’t get more than a couple of miles and it started again.  Actually is is somewhere between a heavy mist and a light rain.  The rain does stop now and then for short periods, but for most of the ride today it is just wet!  Along the way I see more corn fields.  They are still growing.  There is a lot of flood warnings in Nebraska right now and some of the corn fields have a lot of water in them.  After 70 miles of cycling I arrive in Kearney, NE and meet Judy at the Great Platte River Road Archway Monument.  It crosses over the Interstate 80 and is a tourist attraction that depicts a lot of history of the area.  The Oregon Trail, California Trail and Mormon Trail all passed through this area.  The Overland Stagecoach, the Pony Express and the Transcontinental Railroad all travelled along the Platte River.  After visiting the Archway, Judy and I went for dinner at Skeeter Barnes which specializes in dry-rub barbeque.  It is owned by Jim Jenkins who still lives in Callaway on his family ranch.  He was one of Judy’s 6th grade students.   Tomorrow we head for Grand Island, NE to replace a windshield that has a crack in it.  Judy will probably take off ahead of me and be waiting for me in Grand Island when I get there.  Until then . . .
