FURTHER THAN CHICAGO: day 13,14,15,16

“High Wind Advisory” for the past three days.
Trade hills for wind.
I want to trade back.
Visited Fort Larned National Historic site.
Bought a Golden illustrated Field Guide to “North American Indian Art” in the gift shop for 5 dollars.
Four days of sunscreen, dirt, and sweat make up my second skin.
My sleeping bag is full of dead skin.
I got blown off the road yesterday (literally) when a cattle truck passed.
A break every ten miles has become a break every two miles.
Roadkill coyote.
Second flat of the trip.
Goodbye Kansas in two days.
Good riddance.
The past four days:
Cassoday, KS – Nickerson, KS
90 miles
Nickerson, KS – Larned, KS
60 miles
Larned, KS – Ness City, KS
68 miles
Ness City, KS – Dighton, KS
32 miles
City pools open after memorial day, making this my new favorite holiday.
Cheers from the land of windy wheat lakes.
