Well Bill,

I see we do have something in common, after all! :lol:

At least you're still at it. I needed to stop cycling some time ago. :shock:

Safe journey, my great 'Deck debating partner! :D

Ride while you can. :D

Back to the banjo. :D

That's your RV parked in Happy Joe's parking lot?

Is someone driving the route with you, and so that is where you will sleep? And therefore you won't have to ride back across Iowa to get it at the end?

And do a lot of people have RVs following along? I imagine an enormous caravan, a traveling circus of cycling support.

We will pick up a driver in chicago. We pay him to drive us to Council Bluffs on Saturday. His job is to to drive the RV to the mid day meeting town each day. He then drives to the overnight town. His hardist job is find a place to park each night.

We find a house that will let us park and use the facilities about three nights. The other nights we park in a field or vacant lot.

We only have 5 riders. We have had as many as 15. We stack the bikes on the RV and fit the best we can. This ride we can call sleep in the RV. On past rides some slept in tents.

The RV driver leaves in the morning, drives to the mid day town and then drives to the overnight town.

There is still time to slack in the back.

I look forward to your reports, Bill.

And hear their death-knell ringing,
When friends rejoice both far and near,
