I was sad to leave beautiful SD, but I did! And the ride today, although was not twisty, it was beautiful! Lots of big rolling hills, long sweeping corners, two Turtles, one Red Fox and of course too many road kill tragedies. (the last one is not on the good list!) Again, today the traffic surprised me, because it is quite sparse. I'm sure that will change as I travel further south. Today I was on US Hwy 218 most of the time while going south. Lots of wind once I came close to Nebraska & in NE. Hopefully tomorrow it won't be so windy, but I'll settle for wind over rain! Heck, in this heat, even rain (as long as its not too hard) is okay. Oh heLL I'll take whatever the weather is, it will be just perfect! Thank you very much, for allowing me to experience it. I am truly thankful for all my blessings.
