Mississippi River Trail 2 to 25-05-2012

30th April 2012 – Robin and Ian arrived in Minniapolis yesterday after a bumpy ride from Manchester with weather delays. A text¬† message from Pete and Paul told us they had reached St Louis and should be with us at 6-00pm tonight so we should still be on for the ride to start tomorrow. Brought the rain with us so far but the sun has just come out. Turns out the hotel owner comes from Wolverhampton and the uptown pub is run by a bloke from Wigan, ‘pie-eaters’ out here even

more tomorrow, pictures as well even

Day 1 – Headwaters Photoshoot 1st of all guys sorry for the gap in news, we had no wifi last night.
