Friday. Strawberry Point, IA. 25 miles. Rough mowed field. Hot and humid.

We're into the languid dog days of summer when the air is thick and moist and by afternoon it's too hot for much of anything. It's fair and carnival and festival season. Yesterday in Fayette we came in one day ahead of the Watermelon Festival. Today the Iowa State Fair opens. Crowds can be sparse in August until schools start to reopen. On Sunday we move into Wisconsin and in a couple weeks we'll turn south aiming for an October closing in Texas and revisiting thr towns where we were snowed in during the Spring. After that, winterquarters.

Thursday. Fayette, IA. 45 miles. Grass. Hot. Humid
