A looooong day, 94 miles from Lemmon, SD to Mobridge, SD, I never thought it possible to go that far, but tomorrow is a rest day and I feel better already. We met some great people along the way and NO, we are not stay in the jail tonight. In Lemmon, the local paper, The Dakota Herald, LaQuita Shockley, Editor, interviewed me this morning after talking to Andy on 23. She was a real delight and loved seeing Homer’s bones and hearing about Burpee and all that we do. She took many pictures and we will be posting hers tomorrow.
Our first stop along route 12 was in McIntosh, SD, the Tigers, at the local grocery store and bought skim milk and donuts. One of the advantages of biking all day is I eat whatever I want. Bob gave Cassie, mother of Brady and Bailie, Burpee bone ink pens which we are handing out along the way, they are a big hit. Not long after this, I hit the 200 mile mark and we stopped to take a picture.
Crossing the Missouri was a wonderful experience, its an amazing ride and the lake is beautiful, Lake Oahe, I have no idea how to pronounce this. The locals told us the fishing is great here and many come for fishing vacations. I’m looking forward to a rest day tomorrow and then back on the road Friday, headed to Aberdeen. I am feeling good and my minor health issue is stable as long as the duct tape holds ups. By the way Bob is good too.
