Ten Days to Texas
On this long, challenging bicycle journey, I am currently 120 miles, or 3 days west of Kansas. There I will turn south for another 2 or 3 days to knock off Oklahoma and Arkansas on my way to Texarkana at the Texas state line.
Just writing those words seems a bit surreal, but it's been like that for the entire trip. In reality, I now have over 5300 tough miles behind me ...
... it's not illegal to smoke in restaurants, it felt naughty!
We then set off for our last stretch before reaching the hotel. Oklahoma state had a really good feel to it and driving into Downtown was even nicer.
We checked into the Hotel (another Hampton Inn). We thought the service was good at St. Louis, but **** me, this was something else! Stephen, and the other check-in girls were SO hospitable. We had a ...

Well, the road was the highlite of the trip thus far! About 24 miles of shoulderless twisty and hilly macadam snaking through corn and potato country. There was a section in the middle with extremely steep hills and elevation changes. As you climb a very steep hill you can't see what is on the other side until you crest the hill, very scary. What's on the other side?
