Sep 16, Moberly, Mo, Trip’s End

Made it 54 miles into Moberly about noon where, fortunately, I was able to
get into our motel room. It started raining about an hour out and I was really wet and cold. Hot shower fixed that and Sandy arrived about four. She has family in this part of Mo. and as of yesterday a new great nephew named Ross Baker. As I put the metal pony in the car this evening the odometer read 2,513 miles – great bike. I’d have to do a couple hundred more to complete the Lewis and Clark Trail and most of that would be on the Katy Railtrail. I’m going to save the Katy for another vacation. So, tomorrow we start visiting relatives between here and Southern Illinois. This ride has been a great experience. I’ve ridden every day since Aug. 9th, and virtually all of those days I had sunshine. I’ve really appreciated hearing from friends and family through this blog…thank you all. Thanks again to Bill DeLoache for joining in Montana and helping me past the oil boom in N. Dakota. We saw some great scenery. Tomorrow I rejoin the driving world where everything zips by at 65 mph. The uphills will be easy, but I’ll miss the sights, sounds, smells, etc. Bad weather for pics today so I thought I’d rerun a sunny shot from the Great Falls of the mighty Missouri River.
