    Dayton to Salem and wandering home again.

    Tomorrow marks the beginning of a long anticipated journey. What a great feeling to finally be heading out on about a seven k mile trip. Some planned and the return.
    The first day is from home to Elgin IL. there I meet my riding partner for the trip to Salem. Some camping and hoteling along US 20 timed to arrive on Wednesday to help set up and registration.

    Corn, heat and local color

    Sunday 6:30am.
    It has been a busy two days. It is funny how time compresses when every minute of the day is busy, busy.
    So here is a brief recap in the short time I have available. It is another early start today.
    Currently we are in O'Neill, NE at a Super 8.
    I left Dayton around 8am Friday at arrive in Elgin for dinner with Mary and Carla. US 35 north to US 20 west and straight across Indiana and into Illinois. Impressions, CORN, CORN and some more corn. I cannot imagine the volume of corn and there is more. Where does it all go?
    Great dinner and gab. So Mary has a RT with all the appropriate farkles for touring, a few that I will have to investigate. Illium floorboards, humm.
    Here is a problem some smarter person that I could help us solve. We both have Sena intercoms. They will not pair and now that we have attempted to pair them they will not pair with the other systems that they were previously pairs with. Ant thoughts from wiser folks that me would be appreciated.
    We left Elgin about 7 with breakfast in Rockford at a mom and pop. Carla rode out with us, the about 700 miles of corn with some beans for flavor. Oh, a couple of feed lots for smell shock.
    O'Neill on Saturday night! Summer Fest. what a hoot. Sam Adams, Dairy Queen and a vintage car show.
