Camped last night at Wilson Island State Park on the western border of Iowa. For yet another night we set up camp in a light rain and broke camp in the mist. This was our most primitive camp yet. We had pit toilets! But $11 a night is not bad. In Omaha, Nebraska, then went in search of breakfast. You cannot prove by us that there are any restaurants in Omaha open for breakfast. We made cheese sandwiches and ate in the car while parked on a downtown street. Then we went to the Gerald Ford Birthplace and took pictures in the garden but the museum is closed on weekends. After that we drove north on US 75 through the Winnebago Reservation and crossed back into Iowa at Sioux City to visit the gravesite of Sargeant Floyd, the only member of the Lewis & Clark Expedition to die on the expedition. We then headed north to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. We treated ourselves to a night at a Fairfield Inn and a dinner and a beer at Texas Roadhouse Grill!
