I didn’t know if we were going to crash into the fifteen foot wide corn harvest combine that was coming our way, roll off the steep embankment on the side of the road or make it through unscathed. I didn’t know because I had my eyes closed.
We started the day in beautiful Newton Hill South Dakota, packed up our stuff and began the long 8 hour run to Missouri. We started early, cut through Iowa, Nebraska and finally ended up in Missouri where we stopped at Saint Joseph’s bike trail and Casino. It was a short bike trail that ran along side the Missouri River, flat and about 5 miles long.
After a lunch of PBJT, peanut butter and jelly tortillas, we made our way past Kansas City to Arrow Rock State Park. I should have known there would be trouble when we left highway K for a smaller road.
The combine took up 3/4 of the road and as it crested the hill, I was shocked to see him unconcerned with our situation . He didn’t slow down and before we knew it, found ourselves side by side. I encouraged Vicki to drive through the steep cliff of grass rather than driving through the large
mountain of machinery. RUN THE GRASS.
we made it.
We arrived at Arrow Rock State Park It is beautifully and we biked all around till dusk. Then had Moscow Mules bacon burgers and got to bed.
