Today I was up and out early for an hour of rowing on perfect water on a fine lake a quarter mile from my hotel in Laporte, Indiana.
De-rig, load, drive back to the hotel for shower and quick breakfast. Drive across northwest Indiana, Illinois and Iowa into Omaha, Nebraska for the night. It is 5:00 PM and It is 97 degrees outside. The low tonight is forecast to be 75. We don’t have these temperatures on the south coast of Oregon.
All across Iowa I drove into a strong headwind and, for 90 minutes, a Midwestern thunderstorm with black sky, heavy rain, bolts of lightening all around, and boom after boom!
The boats held on.
