Day 23 Chester to Farmington 48 miles


Chester where we stayed last night was full of statues of Popeye and all his friends,apparently the inventor of Popeye was born there.Anyway we left Chester and within 2 miles we were across the Mississippi bridge and into Missouri.The first 15 miles was in the flat Mississippi Basin but the head wind was so strong that it seemed like we were going up hill.Eventually we did climb out of the Basin up to the Ozarks ,miles after miles of roller coaster roads,real energy sapping stuff,when were so glad when we finally made it to Farmington and we are staying in Al’s Place a super Hostel just for cyclists run by the local police .A great facility. As the gears and crank on my bike are playing up and there are head winds forecast of over 20 mph we have decided to have a rest day and get my bike fixed and our legs rested.

Short video with some bad language!
