|Late start out of Louisville KY. It was good to see everyone that had made the trip to support Sam Swope Charity Ride. Would have liked to stay for the party Saturday night and the charity run on Sunday but with 1,260 miles to Spearfish SD with a deadline, decided to hit the road after a photo op at Churchill Downs. I've always enjoyed riding around the farmlands of America and this area doesn't disappoint. After a hard days ride pulled into Columbia MO to be told that there were 12000 extra people in town for a annual event and there were no rooms anywhere. So on the road again. Before leaving Columbia made reservations in Boonville MO. Finally a place to sleep.
