Dean spent the night in Erie and then took off early for Watertown, South Dakota, my hometown. CarolAnn and I took off in our Cessna from Prescott, AZ at about the same time so we landed in Watertown just an hour or so before Dean did. Dean had ferocious head wind, which produced ground speeds as low as 105 knots. CA and I had a delightful tail wind and enjoyed a ground speed of over 200 knots so we were able to make it non-stop. The weather had been stormy in SD the day previous to our arrival but we enjoyed 2 very nice days there. There was a reception held for Dean at the airport with the mayor attending as well as about 75 curiosity seekers. The mayor gave him a lap blanket. This blanket is a product of South Dakota industry.
