Day 11

Morning of day 11 saw me say good bye to Thunder Bay and head on out to Manitoba via Minnesota.



Nice roads and skies.



Not long after,



Even more miles done than the previous day, with a total of 750km. Which, at the moment, is about as long a distance as I care to do on Big O. Was quite happy to get off him when we reached the campground. But I have a feeling that as the days go by and get use to the plywood seat and the ridiculously vibby hand grips, that maximum is going to go up...

One of the things that I've always wanted to see in the prairies is a thunder storm. With the wide open landscape, when on the proper side of the storm front, you get to actually see the storm cell and not just experience it. Well my wish was very quickly granted: I had not one but two cumulonimbus greet me at the Manitoba border!! Seems that if you ride fast enough, you can go through them and once you reach the other side, you get to see them! Nice!!






Big O's take on today's events
What a dreamy place to gallivant! Even the clouds where being herded away by this nice giant.



So that I would not get my feet wet perhaps? How thoughtful of him!
