Anyway, we got a two hour narrated tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's private residence. Pretty neat stuff. I did not know that he collected all of that Asian stuff (little Buddha's and whatnot). The home was classic Wright. I was a little surprised at the shape the place was in. Most of the windows looked pretty leaky. The structure looks really sturdy from a distance...
I found a smaller road called County G. It was not as direct, but it was rather scenic. Went through some Amish country wear everyone seemed to wave quite gaily. Around 7:30 it was looking pretty dark when I rolled into Lime Ridge. I asked some kids about sleeping in the park and then headed for the local tavern, Wounded Knee. All 709 people in Lime Ridge seem to be really friendly. One guy, Rodney, even offered me his spare bed when he saw the storm that was blowing up. I almost took it, but after the rain blew over, I decided to camp in the little park in the middle of town.
