Hello Fans, Friends and Family

Tuesday, June 29th:  I got an early start this morning and started my eastward  trek on State Hwy 44 at 7:AM.  When we arrived in Audubon, IA we took a detour to Albert Park to see “Albert the Bull”.  They have a very nice bike trail along side the road for about 3 ½ miles that gets you away from the traffic.  A few more miles down the road on Hwy 44 I passed the Missouri-Mississippi Divide at an elevation of 1440 feet.  All waters west of this point run to the Missouri River and all waters east of this point run to the Mississippi River.  In Guthrie Center, IA we decided to take another detour on Hwy 25 south about 28 miles to view “Freedom Rock”.  Beginning in 1999, Ray “Bubba” Sorensen has been painting this rock with “Old Glory” and other artwork honoring our veterans.  Ray re-paints the rock every year with new artwork and you can view his artwork and make purchases at his website, www.thefreedomrock.com.    Before we left we purchased an autographed 2011 calendar that has all his last 12 paintings, one for each month.  Today’s ride was 97 miles of rolling hills with a headwind from the east for most of the ride.  Tomorrow I will ride into Des Moines, IA, where I will meet with my brother.  Until then, Saving Lives One Mile at a Time . . .
