Looking forward to it.

Did you get out my way near Ayers Rock when you were in Australia ??

Cheers

Geoff.

Tiffany arrived safe and sound in West Des Moines,

Took her down to show her one of the infamous Bridges of Madison County and then out for a bite and some conversation. It's too bad she is in such a rush to get to Chicago or I would show her around this great desolate state of mine.

Maybe she will have a day or two to stop again on her way back through. FASCINATING lady.
I will have a couple of pics to post but after I see her off in the morning.

Thank you again, Tiffany for letting us host you. We both enjoyed having you in our home and wanted to reiterate that you are always welcome here.

Angelica looking longingly and enviously at Thelma...


Having met the woman, knowing she has gone throughout most of the world on this particular bike is no longer as surprising but even more amazing.


Tiffany gets to see Cedar Bridge. Part of the movie, "Bridges of Madison County" was shot here and in the surrounding countryside/town of Winterset.


Caught her in the act...


Again, what an amazing and wonderful person.

Thumb Chicago Tonight

That's right guys, I've made it across from Phoenix, all 1,962 miles of road and I'm still in one piece though I've got a sore back side- mine is definitely NOT an iron butt! Thanks for all your good wishes and also the helpful hints with my tent- I'll get the pictures of it in Kansas posted up, a bit of an improvement, though I'll still be looking out for REI to replace the broken pole.

It's been a good journey, not a spot of rain anywhere, although for the first time ever in America I got pulled over by the police, in fact he was a sheriff. I talked him round, and n,o I was not speeding at the time

I had to rush to get here from Arizona so I took mostly interstate roads.
I'll be at the Autobarn, Countryside, Illinois this evening from 5.00pm onwards.

I hope to meet a few of you later, I'll be talking about my travels, showing pictures and sharing stories; come and take a look at Thelma who has now clocked up over 180,000 miles, she's enjoying Walter's TLC in the workshop.

Looking forward to meeting you tonight and hearing some tales from your travels.

Also there is an REI store very close, tell Mike or Carey to give you a loner bike or a ride there!

Hey Tiffany
Welcome back to the colonies. We met here in Lafayette a few years ago when you came and spoke at our monthly off-road club meeting. It was at the pizza joint and you were there with Bob and Phyllis C.
Perhaps you'll be around again?
