This gel stuff worked pretty well when you used both cans at the same time.

Got a real digital camera at Walmart so we can post some nice photos later.
Lady next to me in Walmart: “Wait, what? I can’t pronounce that — Mega, MegaPIX.. MEGAPIXEL? Really? The more the better the picture?!”

Most of Missouri is extremely hilly. I mean, short and steep San Francisco worthy hills. Drivers aren’t that courteous and speed up and down the roads which makes us kind of nervous. You can’t see the cars until they’re right on top of you over the crest of each hill. Missouri also doesn’t have any shoulders for cyclist.

Ash Grove. We met another cyclist doing the TransAm coming from the east. He said everything they say about Kentucky is true and that he got chased by about 20 dogs while he was there.

Willy B’s. This is the only place with food. I am dying for rice and noodles.

Highway 160 sucked. We had to stay on it longer than expected because a bridge in Walnut Grove was out.

The Z to the BB was much chiller.

We ended up going to the worst city park ever in Marshfield (we also should have been at the fairgrounds instead). Not only were the bathrooms locked, the spigots were locked too! WHY?! After getting some water out of the drinking fountain, that broke too. We had just enough to boil pasta but then our temporary stove exploded goo everywhere. It took us forever to boil water and we went to bed pretty disgruntled.

Some camera photos:

Next morning pictures:

NO everything. We didn’t have this problem in Kansas.
