A short day. My main concern was to get in before it rained. I stayed dry, and now I'm staying in a casino.

I had breakfast where the locals eat. I got to listen to farmers talk to each other about whoever isn't there. This is something I've come to enjoy on this trip. Farmer talk.

I took only three pictures on the ride. Not much to see but the clouds.

The most interesting thing I saw all day: There is an intersection of County Route 19 and State Route 19.
I don't think Maryland would ever let that happen. Yep. Interesting.

Looked like rain when I got to Redwood Falls, so I stopped at the Country Kitchen and ate a
gigantic cheeseburger. Then I rode to the Walmart to look for a new book to read--they had nothing
that interested me. Then 5 miles more to the Jackpot Junction casino.

One pass through the casino and I'm not impressed. There are very few table games and they are not the games I enjoy (craps and roulette). And the whole place reeks of cigarette smoke. Maybe after dinner I'll try a few hands of blackjack. I'd better win because I will basically be sacrificing a set of clothes.
