Our last stop before reaching South Dakota was Rochester, Minnesota. When we pulled into our site, these were our neighbors -- 6 guy all over the age of 60 bike riding 3500 miles in 55 days in support of the Wounded Warrior Project. They started in Astoria, Oregon, and, God willing, will end their journey in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
It was a pleasure visiting with them. They said when they started they thought they might raise $25,000 for the Wounded Warriors and were amazed how quickly they surpassed that and currently had raised almost $100,000. I'm sure by the time they reach New Hampshire, they will have passed that mark as well.

The following day we reached our first destination of Mitchell, South Dakota.
In our next post, we will outline what we saw and did in the area. Thanks for stopping by -- may God bless you and my God continue to bless our voyage.
