Ride Across the USA: 7/21/10 -- CG to Reedsville, WI -- 92 mi/ 2371 total

Young Amish boy weedeating the melon patch. I asked if I could take his picture. His Mother would not let me take a picture of her with the other children in the regular garden.

Took this picture for Shirley & Darrell of Lenox so that can make plans for their silo!!!

Waiting for the go-ahead to drag our bikes

Take trail out of campground and rode 13 mi on this bloody limestone which our bikes are not just good on. We finally get off onto a road and guess what? It was the county road that we were supposed to end the trail on. Life is good. Rode on to Manawa for brkft. Met a guy in his 80's who was riding his original Murray bike that he has had since he was a kid. It looked brand new and he was pretty proud and stated that it had always been kept in a garage. Had very good brkft and good conversation with the locals. In hearing that the weather would be turning wet we decided to push to Reedsville to the CG because we didn't like the sounds of what is coming at us. Stopped about 8 mi out, talking to a farmer who offered us a jump in his pool! That's a first for the trip. No grocery store in this town of 1100+ so we ate at the local pub, homemade lasagna, and this place has all the original tin on the ceiling and walls. Really quaint.
