Hello Fans and Fanatics!
After a week in limbo, we've moved on from Columbia, Missouri and their overpriced ribs/blues festivals. We find ourselves in the "region" of Higginsville. We've never heard of it either.
We had to ride 10 miles (two different 5 mile stretches) today on I70 - a divided highway, which is illegal. We did this to avoid numerous county roads, which are made up of gravel that reminds one of medieval times. Times in which automobiles had yet to be conceived. You'd think that the invention of the combustion engine would have inspired paved roads on the main arteries through middle America, yet baseball sized rocks line these roads making it more difficult to ride your bike on than a beach. Which, if anyone of you have tried to do it, you'll understand how difficult that is.
Our new friend Phil - keeper of the campgrounds on which we stay - is a pyro like us. He helped us jack up our fire with some C8H18 (gasoline). Then we let off a firework, of medium size.
So, as you can see, Bandcycle is back in action. We're heading into Kansas this week, visiting K-City, Lawrence, and Wichita along the way. Should be a hoot or a holler, and maybe both.
