Dons 70th Birthday

With a few candles missing.

Day 46 Scott city to Tribune

Having survived last nights storm Greg and I were up at the crack of dawn to prepare the 6 30AM breakfast. With a short day, tail winds, and an hour gained as we crossed another time zone we reached our destination just before midday. Today we are camping in the city park so for the first time on this trip I have spent the afternoon lazing around the pool. The city parks here are amazing. They nearly all have a great swimming pool, showers (free for cyclists) and full sport facilities including a baseball pitch. As long as we contact the local sheriff we can camp for free. But the main difference between here and home is that all the facilities are immaculately maintained and respected by the locals.

And finally after 46 attempts I now have a perfectly erected tent  capable of handling anything that nature can throw at it. We have tornado warnings again tonight so we will see.
