Looking down occasionally, we'd typically see speeds 18-25 mph and we were making excellent progress. We met Clay from Minneapolis going in the opposite direction. Poor guy, his average was about 6 mph. Clay is on his way to Missoula to work on an organic farm before continuing on the N Tier Route. He gave us some great tips for the road ahead.
The wind was so good we passed up our first camping choice and rode on for a new daily high of 70 miles.
We were able to camp, for free at the city park. A sign warned tenters to be off the grass by 9 am - that's when the sprinklers came on. Tables with overhangs made cooking in the wind easier.
