Trike Riders Int'l Trip Day 3

Can't use rain as an excuse for the 9:30 start today. In fact, it would be difficult to imagine a more beautiful morning for riding. After 8.5 hours, we rode the 305 miles to Sikeston. All total, we've traveled 960 miles through VA, WV, MD, OH, IN, IL, and MO.

Under a vivid blue sky, we zoomed along the southern border of IN amidst fields of preprocessed ethanol. After passing one field, I noticed two deer on an intercept course with us if we maintained our speed. I signaled to slow down but my wife had already seen them and was braking. They noticed us just as the got to the edge of the road and turned back the way they came.

Tomorrow the Rally begins.
