We decided to leverage our self proclaimed status as the 'Tortoise Brothers', i.e. the riders with the uncanny ability to appear slow but to actually win the race by slowly and methodically gaining ground on the pesky rabbits that claim superior skills & conditioning. [Note: claim and possess]
Hence our superior design....
|Notice the confident look on the Tortoise and the shaken confidence of the rabbit!!!|
On a brighter note, today we crossed into our 9th state during this 79 mile ride. The winds were a quartering headwind most of the day but all in all this was a delightful ride with great temperatures and flat roads. A note of particular interest is that yours truly was born in Kokomo IN so in a way it is my homecoming.
I've noticed that as we move east from MO and thru IL and now into IN, the corn fields seem to be dryer and the crops very much less lush and healthy looking. When talking to the local people along the way, many have commented on the dry weather they have been having. The corn fields seem to bear this out. Pray for rain and good crops for these many good people.
|Probably can't tell from the picture but the corn doesn't seem as tall or healthy.|
That's for all. Talk to you tomorrow.
