Back in 2008 we had to go to a retirement party so we did a nice 8 day tour over almost to lake Michigan and back.

We had some rough roads in Iowa due to the flooding that year.

And this one time it stormed really hard while we were trying to eat our lunch.

But sometimes the weather was beautiful, and oatmeal for breakfast before an all day ride was not just all we could ask for, but all we needed as well.
