Day 24

We had watery oatmeal in Waterloo for breakfast, and it was delicious. The ride was dedicated to Blake’s friends, Helen Kessen who is a survivor of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and Marilu Brisky who is a survivor of breast cancer.

Today the miles flew by quickly. It was supposed to storm, but it didn’t. We (some of us) hugged wind turbines. In 88 miles, we biked to Webster City, Iowa. At a Casey’s for lunch, we were fortunate to meet Larry who survived carcinoma. He shared a portrait with us. At Trinity Lutheran Church, we made dinner. A bunch of us watched Field of Dreams. We found out during the movie that Iowa is heaven. Good night!
