6/17/07 7pm

Today was a cyclist's dream. We awoke to the sun and a stiff southern wind. That was good since most of our day was to be traveling north out of Kansas and into Nebraska. The wind began at about 15 kts and increased during the day to about 25 kts. There were many times we were cruising down the highway on a level stretch at 30 mph with our tires humming on the concrete. At that rate the miles flash by and it's pretty exciting. We ate lunch in Mankato, Kansas amongst thick trees. We continued north into Nebraska and entered the state through the town of Superior. While there we couldn't refuse the Subway special offer of 2 foot long sandwiches for a great price so we ate lunch again. We ended up at the farm of John and Lynn Greer south of Edgar, Nebraska. John is Sheryl Chard's cousin and she graciously arranged for us to connect with them before we left.

Total mileage today: 80 miles in 4 hours and 46 minutes
Trip total: 865
