Rainy Rails in Iowa

Rainy Rails in Iowa

Not that it really matters since we’re completely inside, but when we woke up this morning in Nebraska we were greated by rains and flash floods.

I started to write a blog last night about our impromptu “dinner show” that involved a drunk 72 year old man getting hog tied after calling FBI agents “fake nazi cops”,and then deciding it would be a good idea to try and kick them. Lets just say he didn’t quite make it to chicago, and the Denver police greeted him at our next stop. Great story.

We’re 356 miles from Chicago now, due to arrive around eight.

There’s Another Journey Going on

We wanted to give some quick love to to another group of guys making the trip cross country. The vehicle named the contrabego has been pushing hard since the end of practice sunday, due to arrive tomorrow . They haven’t had it as easy as we have, but im sure they have had just as much fun. They have been hauling all our gear, and we really appreciate it,

safe travels boys.

Well its officially the end of day one aboard the locomotive. Dinner was good. I had the flat iron steak, Matt had the cornish game hen, and Mike rounded it out with the pesto tortalini. We all had amazing raspberry cheesecake for desert. Wrapped the night up with some sectional time, and now that we just left winnemuca nv, its bed time.
Goodnight everyone, we’ll see ya in Utah tomorrow morning.
