    Indian Reservations

    Today we passed "Devil's Lake" and through the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation. This is the second major reservation we have crossed.

    Italian Food

    There are no Italians out here. Consequently, there are no Italian restaurants. For weeks I've been jonesing for a veal parmigiana dinner, or some lasagna, decent pizza, or a canolli. Not possible. All we can find are burgers, steaks, sandwiches, and convenience store slop.

    One of Gary's friends (of Italian descent) told us that there are no Italians out here because it's too wide open. Without a wall to keep their backs to, they'd be uncomfortable worrying about which direction the hit was coming from.

    I don't know if that's true, but I sure would enjoy a bowl of spaghetti.

    Rugby, ND -- The Geographical Center of North America

    [CENTER] Hooray! Maybe we are half way. We reached Rugby, a town that claims to be the geographical center of North America. So, in that sense, we are half done. We've ridden about 1625 miles so far, but I don't know the total distance. Another way to measure is longitude. Today we crossed longitude 100 degrees West, having started at 122 degrees and are destined for Atlantic City at about 74.5 degrees. So, we have about 25.5 degrees to go, but we've been doing a degree and change per day, so the midpoint, longitude wise, is still a day or two away.
