Arrowing to the Hawkeye State and milking America's Dairyland

Day 10 harbored a significant moment on The Road to 50 States, as the team crossed the Mississippi River for the first time. We say first time because in a trip going in circles around all States, it's inevitable it will be more than once. And, in fact, it turned out to be twice in one day as they began in the metropolis of Chicago, where they interviewed Jennifer Chadwick of BioAnalytix, then crossed the mighty river into the Hawkeye State of Iowa. In Coralville, they got to meet two exciting companies in the form of Vida Diagnostics and Viewpoint Molecular Targeting. At this point, they had to flip east again because the next State to visit was Wisconsin. So, it was back across the Mississippi again at dusk to America's Dairyland, where they would get set for Day 11. It had been another successful day, so nobody was having a cow.
