Day 44: Tuesday, 14th August. Destination: Prairie View Lodge, Pekin, North Dakota
Dined out at the Peek-In Pub (get it?!). On the menu: 8 kinds of frozen pizza, all of them meat. The place was full of loud ladies who could have out-laughed Roseanne Barr at her lairiest. Not quite in the mood, so headed back to the lodge for an early night with the ‘local on the eights’. And what does that mean? Simply, local weather forecast every 10 minutes on the '8's - i.e. 8, 18, 28 etc after the hour. Weather channel turns to teletext with 70s jazz-lite soundtrack as the local weather conditions (including wind direction and speed; things I’m starting to take an interest in) scroll down the screen. Hypnotic, and – as I’ve discovered – generally pretty accurate.
