Day 31 51 miles to Chester IL. Missouri is finished, no more Ozarks. Today's ride had enough hills so that I was tired when I got here. Toughest hill was from the Mississippi River up to the town of Chester.
Around 9am I got hit by a thunder and lightening storm and looked for cover. Pushed my bike up a driveway and under a carport. Nobody home, so I settled in until the rain let up. The lady who owned the house came home as I was getting ready to leave and was happy that I had been able to use here parking area for cover. Nice people everywhere.
