last shakedown

maybe the last shakedown ride before the event. and i had a partner this time. thanks mg. that was nice to have someone along. this is at 234 and just south of fairveiw, looking north. i'd take these conditions for the TI. northwest wind. mmmm baby.

this is weird, different route then last week (slightly), different wind, but same mileage and same average to the tenth! weird. instead of going to 322 we went north on 310. instead of heading up to the glass church on pflug we headed west on ruff and then northeast on hwy6 to 234 up to capehart. i thought i'd have a few miles plus over last week. but no. oh well. interesting experiment.

incredible... that was a fun ride tho. it's amazing how fast we flew to 310th st., then how long it took us to get to murdock (after initially seeing the grain elevator/water tower).

i was torched from that wind. good thing a big feast awaited me in gretna!

thanks for a great ride mw! you're clearly ready for trans iowa, on every level. i don't think you've ever been as strong, or as motivated as you are right now.

it's not far off now...
