My nephew is getting married Saturday so I’m here in Kansas for a few days. When I arrived it was 29 degrees and got up to 50 yesterday….but today it was 72 with no wind and guess who took the bike out of the storage shed because tomorrow it’s supposed to SNOW. Welcome to weather in the Midwest. Just ask Greg!!
I was out doing my walk when I thought why am I walking let’s just cut this short (3 mi instead of 5) and headed home to dig the bike out.
I first had to head up to Cliff’s to get my tires pumped up. They were pretty low and going up the hills to his house was fun😂 When I arrived he was busy changing oil on his bikes. How many do you see here? That’s my bro….he loves his toys.
Nice down hill from Cliff’s didn’t really have a plan so just let it happen. I ended up with 10 Miles and had a really fun ride……come along.
I found myself at my High School. Some of you may recall that we rode the TransAm from Eugene,OR to Junction City for my 50th class reunion in 2014. I didn’t ride to here so guess I’ve now done that.
******Yes, they were stationed here at Ft Riley. Also, my Dad graduated OCS (officer candidate school) in the last Cavalry Class on horse in 1943 at Ft Riley. It became a tank division. I’m glad you asked Kathleen as I thought I might be repeating myself. This memorial was sponsored by my Dad and Several other local veterans. Here is a link to more info.
I’m not sure why this isn’t a hyperlink? Any thoughts?
There was a Round House here when I was a kid. It’s gone now along with the train station. I wonder who’s great idea it was to tear them down. This train was about 20 cars and not sure what they were doing but it was fun to watch. I guess we all love trains.
There is only one way to get back to Moms UP so why not go by and see Dad. Bill Crites was quite a character you would have enjoyed meeting him.
When I got back from my ride she was out walking around the circle at the end of her street. She told me she was going to take a nap. Well that didn’t happen. Tomorrow she is making dinner for 15. Think I get a lot of my endurance from her!
Goodbye from Kansas.
