As we drove from Dunn Center to Watertown, we encountered some pretty heavy rains that, much to my surprise, washed the vast majority of the bugs and their left over carcasses off the front of my car. The bumper, grille and lights seemed to have magically cleaned themselves. Yes, there are some remnants but the vast majority just disappeared. It occurs to me that my using a Griot's carnauba based paste wax before we left may have made a significant difference. Add a strong rain and presto.
We were in the middle of what looked like no where earlier today and found a place for lunch a little off the beaten path. At first I thought it was not a chain but after doing some research I find that Penny's Dinners are attached to the hotel chain, Oak Tree Inn. But I really didn't care. It was a fun place to visit and the food in this one was great. Located off Highway 29 and Missouri Valley. Great service, atmosphere and food.
We are spending the evening in Omaha and heading for Kansas City tomorrow.
