Day 4 was another day full of sunscreen use.  We started out early leaving our wonderful hosts in Webster City around 6:30am.  Among the yummy bites of food we enjoyed were some delicious cinnamon rolls made by friends of our family, the Echelberger's, who live in Kamrar.  After fueling up we continued on our way.  We were all very excited to get to Story City since it is a Norwegian community and Team Uffda was definitely well recognized as we strolled around town in search of grub.  Jon did the majority of riding Grandpa's bike today so he once again was had to punch through the wind.  Once we made the turns heading east it was smooth sailing with a crosswind mostly at our backs.  It was a lot of fun cruising along with some folks on the Livestrong team and Air Force group too.  Both of those teams are always really enjoyable to be around and do so much good for others as well. 
When we got to Marshalltown we were greeted by our hosts, Darryl and Eileen, who opened their home up to us for the night.  Several other teams were staying there too, so their neighbor was kind enough to do some barbecuing for us all.  It was certainly a nice treat.  As always, we were thankful to be sleeping inside, and even more so on this night since a strong storm swept through that night.
