Friday July 10: DeSmet to Tyler, MN

78.3 miles, still a headwind but overall, a pretty good day!

Ro's Phrase Of The Day:
The body didn't want to start!

Because of the books I'd bought in DeSmet, Alouysius (the bear) had to ride in one of the gear trucks with Nicky (sp?), the driver of the I/J truck. She likes him, too, so she's a great babysitter. We stayed on Hwy 14 again, with moderate rollers to some really flat areas, through the towns of Arlington, Volga, and Brooking. We then crossed the border into Minnesota, and had a little party, thanks to the Team Minnesota riders. They provided the sign we're holding, which says "Uff Da!" Scenery shots:
