A “Tale” about a Southern Illinois training ride……

We left Cape Girardeau Missouri in the evening, worked our way north on the Mississippi River levee road, to an overlook called Pine Hills State Park… Beautiful evening, beautiful camping spot (although we climbed a mountain to get there!!). We were able to test all our gear, including our water purifiers!
