Mile 330

I had a chance to meet up with Chris Goodale (he and I pictured here) around noon to enjoy a bite to eat before continuing today's ride. We are in Moravia, Iowa, which has been very important to Simpson College over the years. It is the home of Simpson trustee Mary Rose Main '53, honorary life trustee Dick Smith '53 and his sister, Maxine Weinman '49, and Laurie Dowd Gowdy '89, who was an all-American softball player at Simpson.

It has been a beautiful day. We have finished the Karras Loop which will allow us to get 100 miles in today. Right now we're at just about mile 70 for the day. The sun is out, it's heating up, and as I post this, I see Professor Steve Rose walking up to join us. Everything is going great and we look forward to getting to Ottumwa later today.
