Boondocking the Nation: 17 Days, 8300mi, 1 Motel
1000mi in 24hrs
(I-90 > Some Casion in Indiana)
I sleep through the rain which mostly misses me and awake in the darkness around 5AM. Packing goes quickly and I hastily make my escape over the grass, curb and back onto I-90. I ride until my gas light comes on then fuel up and check my tire pressure. I watch the sun rise as I make for Mitchell, SD where I eat breakfast and make a brief visit at the Corn Palace.
The entire facade is recreated each year out of corn cobs.
All the art up there is made of corn cobs.
This thing just looked strange. Some pseudo tribal tourist thing-a-ma-jig.
The remainder of this day is all about big miles and crossing as many states as I can in a final push back home.
See ya Minnesota
It began to sprinkle in Iowa and I glanced at my radar on the phone. Looks like I am riding into the back end of a storm :doh
Later Harley Dudes
Guess I will just have to push on right through.
BREAK ON THROUGH TO THE OTHER SIDE!
I ride well in to the night and stop somewhere in Indiana by a Casino at 11PM or so. After covering over 1000mi for the day, I am starting to nod off and could use the break. I pull off the interstate, ride past a marine store then down a dead-end road to a clump of trees where I string up for a four hour rest. Laying in my hammock, I watch a police car pull over an SUV on the opposite side of the interstate. Soon, a couple cop cars flash their blue lights and haul away the driver in front of the Casino. As long as they stay busy on that side of the highway I'm happy.
