In Minneapolis on Sunday, March 26, 1967, after visiting in Osceola, Dale wrote, “Helen and I left Osceola early, stopped at Gerald and Ressia’s a short time. Drove all the way home in the rain against the wind. Helen made a reservation on an Ozark plane for Tuesday to Cedar Rapids, she is going to see Harley in the Iowa City hospital. Talked to Dalene in the evening, she gets 24 mpg on her new VW.” Gerald and Harley were two of Helen’s brothers. The next day, Dale decided to take her to Iowa City, so he took the rest of the week off and they canceled the reservation. Above: Osceola to Latimer, Iowa, about 130 miles, where Gerald and his wife Ressia lived.
