Left Colorado Springs area around 10 this morning. Had a contingent of 7 Indians including colo.gw, Koala Cowboy, Falcon and highaltidude. Took the back roads across much of eastern Colorado going through Eads before stopping for lunch in Granada. Then it was another 15 miles or so to the Kansas state line where we stopped for a group picture. colo.gw flagged down a car and got the guy to take the picture. In return, we took a picture of him in front of the Welcome to Kansas sign. Then, we said our goodbyes and I took off first because I just knew if I sat there and watched the Colorado riders cruise into the distance, my bike wouldn't start and I'd be really pissed. I was going to stop for the night in Garden City but the stench of the Tyson meat processing plant was just too uninviting so I continued on another 50 miles to Dodge City. Compared to Colorado, Kansas really ain't much to look at. The only scenic overlook on the ride today was, believe it or not, a view of a bunch of steer in a stockyard. I kid you not. They actually built a roadside pulloff just to look at the meat. The weather was on the warm side but, after all the thunderstorms I've ridden through, it was a welcome change. The bike ran fine so I'm hoping the electrical gremlins have been warded off for awhile. Tomorrow, I head through Wichita and then stop for the night in a little town called Toronto. I chose it because it has lakeside camping and, in this part of Kansas, a lake is about the only scenery to be offered. I plan to make up the day I lost by forgoing the day I had planned to canoe the Gasconade River in Hermanville, MO and only spend one night there instead of two. I hate to do that because it looked like a lot of fun but I've got to try and stay on schedule. Besides, I've still got 8 days of kayaking on the Upper Missouri to look forward to. colo.gw, you and Linda were incredible hosts and I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate everything you did for me. Needless to say, my door will always be open for you should you find yourselves in my stomping grounds. Tell Linda that I already ate all her cookies which has completely spoiled my appetite for dinner but it was worth it. I'll be heading out to look around Dodge City once my appetite returns but I've already been here before and done the Boot Hill thing so, after that, it's back to the motel for a good night's sleep. Talk to you later.
