Scott city, KS ---> Sheridan Lake , CO
After a decent stay at the athleticlub, we got going around 830am. We had not done laundry in a good while so we decided that considering the high temperature was only 82 it was ok to spend some precious morning hours to do some chores. After laundry we had subway for breakfast ( egg sandwiches with veggies and cheese- not terrible but weird because the egg was sitting next to the tomatoes, pre cooked and thawed out from the walk in freezer. Still tasted good nevertheless)
Anyway we stopped a few times in the towns of Leoti,where we got some candy, and then again in Tribune for a quick bite. Tribune was 18 miles from our final resting spot for the day of Sheridan Lake. We ran into a family also riding east west. It was a mom, dad, brother and sister. Mom and brother were dad and sister's sag wagon. ( sag= support and gear) basically the dad and sister were the only riders and the mom and brother rode in a truck and trailer with their stuff. Pretty nice to have nothing on the back of your bike.
We got to the church we were planning to stay at an hour earlier due to crossing into the mountain time zone which was great- more sleep tonight! We are staying at a cool church with a full kitchen so we cooked pasta and beans on a real stove which was a nice change- still the same meal as usual though hah. We are about to meet Jen's dad and Diane out in Colorado Springs for some well needed
R and R. Gonna be great to relax for a few days and not spend the large majority of the day sitting on something 10 inches x 4 inches hah. Its truly amazing to think how far we really have come- 1870 miles. And yet the wild west still sits waiting for us. Sometimes it is easy to forget how wide and diverse both the people And the landscape of this country really are when you are home and just living normal life. This country is massive, and riding a bike through it has given great insight into why we really are called a melting pot.

And again we go back in time...
