We have been riding on Hwy 11 for days or weeks by now. We see two things consistently...
Every town has a liquor store. Not in every town can you buy milk or bread but it seems like you can get a beer near by.
We also see a lot of trucks.
"Share the road" takes on a whole new meaning when you have trucks everywhere as you ride. Mostly, the drivers are looking out for us but there are moments when you feel the truck just a little too close for comfort. And safety. We have also been surprised by the lack of trains. Perhaps more trains would mean fewer trucks?
