Day 29 Chester to Farmington

Today we left Illinois and entered Missouri crossing the Mississippi by the bridge featured in the movie 'In the Heat of the Night' featuring Sydney Poitier.  The heat and humidity were overpowering today making it difficult to stay hydrated so although less than 50 miles the hilly terrain made it another tough day. Chester is also the home of 'Popeye'  see statue below. We also had amajor breakdown with the trailer on Dolo's bike but a local bikeshop 20 miles away came to the rescue and sent out a man with a spare part. Can you imagine that happening in the UK.
