After several hours of examining cornfields today I've determine one major difference between cornfields in Kansas and cornfields in Missouri, Nothing! The team awoke to a down pour which was supposed to be a zero percent chance of rain. The weather changed soon after we left and we rode into clear skies and warm weather that was much more enjoyable to ride in. A few crew stops into our ride the crew members bombarded us with water balloon which quickly escalated into a full on water fight, keeping spirits up and putting a smile on everyone's face.

We finished the around 1 and quickly headed to a bike shop in town to pick up the essentials; tubes, tires, and other misc. bike parts are always needed after a days ride. Again spoiled by one of generous sponsors we had a hotel to stay in and enjoyed beds and nice showers. The team headed to dinner at Jerry's house, the gentleman who put us up in the Holiday Inn, also grilled out and had a great BBQ for us.

The team had the evening off and being in a college town some of us decided to go downtown and get icecream and coffee. We walked the campus of the University of Missouri-Columbia, also known as Mizzou.


On our way back to the hotel we stopped by the Pi Kapp house and were fortunate to take a tour and see another neat chapter house. Another great day on the Journey of Hope!!!

Few news articles including video in the second one, which has some glamor shots of Heidi my whip.
