Where are we today
clic on a pic to enlarge itWe had our own quiet corner last night at the Walmart in Sydney Nebraska and I had wonderful sleep. Except I slept too fast. My body is still on Eastern Standard time so instead of waking up about 4:30 am as usual it was 2:30 am. Hmm. That's it, I am awake tried reading for an hour, eyes got tired but did not go back to sleep. Oh well no problem I can checkout our route today, have coffees and wait for Suzie and the sun to rise.An what a beautiful sunrise we had.

Suzie followed me in the car for the next 3 hours, stopping at the rest areas and made a bite for lunch. No problems with overheating at all and with the temps only about 65f. But the grades and the high wind gusts mostly only travelling 40 to 50 mph. It was a long steady climb but nothing really bad. Thanks to Al and Kelly of the Bayfield Bunch for suggesting this route, we will follow more of their recommendations. The wind was 27 mph with gusts to 40mph hitting us broadside.
|good roads all the way|
|we having too much fun|
|looking back the way we came|

The parking spots here for Rv's are back in. Nice that we did not have the car hooked up, will do that in the morning.

they are permanent snow fences
glad we made it through with good weather
This was so tasty and added a tomato slice and cantaloupe to round out the meal. And of course leftovers for another meal.
|a very tasty treat|
Think we can relax a bit more after trying to walk around outside. Enjoy a nice quiet evening and on the road in the morning with hopefully much less wind if the weather Gods hold true with their predictions.
|today 253 miles|
Glad that y'all stopped by and hope you had nice weather wherever you are.
