Today was a 'half-rest' day with a ride of only 40 miles. Unfortunately, surface winds of 10 - 15 knots were directly in our face the entire trip. Even though a short trip, it was like riding up a hill all day. Once again, Mike K and I worked together in a 2-man line and completed the trip in 3 H 16 min, averaging 12.1 mpg and arriving at the hotel at about 1pm.
We did enter our 6th state today!!

We'll be in Kansas for 6 straight days so I'm sure we'll be seeing lots of flat fields of corn. The entire wild card is the weather, specifically the surface winds and thunderstorms with rain. Oh well, that is part of the adventure.
After arriving, Michele and I went on a tour of a local 'Land of Oz' and local history museum. The story of the developments from the Native Indians, Coronado and even the settlers of the dust bowl era was very interesting.
Who couldn't resist walking on the yellow brick road.
