I had a great night in Leoti City Park. It was quiet and no sprinkler attacks last night. I got an early start into some dense fog. I had all my lights flashing so I could be seen. The fog was kind of nice. It kept the tempurature down. Once the fog cleared it was a fantastic morning. The sun was shining, no wind and relatively cool. I was making great time on the flat roads.
Some miles into the trip I met a group of guys going west. In the picture the guy up front in the green shirt is Marion, and there are a few Joe’s in there but, I could not remember everybody’s name. Marion is from Germany and just finished college. There was so much information and trying to match it up with each person would be a mental exercise my mind is not ready for right now.
I stopped in Dighton for lunch. I actually found a salad. I have not had a salad since, geez I don’t remember. Anyway, and fruit as well. It was good to have more options than the regular convenient store fair. I met a couple other riders at the store Carl from Arizona and Robert from Bowling Green, KY. I had a nice chat with Robert a disable veteran. I wished him well and got on Bike. Dang! Flat front tire. Well not a bad place to have to change a tire, under the awning of a convenient store. At least it’s the front, much easier than the back.
As Willy would say, “on the road again” I rode toward Ness City. The heat was starting to get bad and I am noticing humidity. I guess the dry western heat is gone. Not too much excitement today. Today is 30 days on the road!
I am staying at a city park in Ness City, KS
Day 30 – 80 miles
