A NEW DAY, A NEW FLIP





 

Galena, Illinois, 7:13 a.m.


First flip question: Should we flip Ulysses S. Grant (a painted $1 coin) instead of the master Winged Mercury coin?  

Answer: Your choice is ill advised.

So we stick with Winged Mercury.

I scribble my destination on a paper napkin; Van Stein does the same.

Then Van Stein flips and I call "heads."

It comes up tails.




And off we roll top Kansas City, chosen by us both.



Passing through Dubuque, Iowa.
