Day 12: 651 miles, Grand Island, NE to Ted's Crib

Written on: Tuesday July 17th, 2007

Day 12. The final push home. The highlight of Nebraska was lunch.

Iowa wasn't much better, but got increasingly nicer as we approached civilization. Our last valve adjustment/swimming stop was at a nice state park that reminded me of WI, just with slightly smaller hills.

Our last gas stop was Davenport, IA, where we met some eastern European guy who was just hanging out there and told us repeatedly how great BMWs are.

Two hours later we picked up Emily on the way back to Ted's place were finally home. A little dinner, a couple beers and that was about it.
