Crossed into Minnesota. Two rest areas in a row closed. 200Km too much to
ride without a break in this heat (still constantly over 40, up to 44).
Entered the second rest area around the sign that says "Road closed". Screw
it, gotta take a break. (Later I found out that all rest areas along my way were closed. A strike?)

700Km so far today, all in terrible heat, at high speed and with a lot of
side wind gusts. Have to put the helmet on or my head will explode :).
Neither with nor without is good for everywhere and every day, especially
not the whole day. Thankfully here I have a choice.
