The Arkie Okie bunch N9 trip

1st day out, we made it up to Belleville, KS and met up with Bryan and Linda...
I had all of their pertinent info in my phone, the Note 4, and thought all was well.

2nd day out, we left Belleville at daybreak and was really lucky, cloudy and 66* to start out, at 10 AM it is only 77* and when we pulled into Hot Sprints it was just touching 90*.

Even I would have been able to make that trip.... but, you just don't know what the weather gods will throw at you over a 10 day span..... so, we have the pickup and trailer, and are taking turns driving the truck, and riding our bikes.....

I can ride when it is super cool, and Chuck can ride if he wants to. Which he plans to ride from Hot Springs to Sioux Falls and I will drive the truck.... but, it it turns off tooooo hot for Chuck, we will stop and load up his bike and he can get inside where the a/c is.

Advantages to our madness this NASSIR tour.

We went out and took a loop around north of town today, left at daybreak again and stopped for breakfast, then on to the tourist traps.... Chuck was feeling a bit off, and went back to the hotel at 10:30, I stayed one more hour with Dave and Andy and then I turned back to the hotel....

Here are a few pix that I was able to snag....
The buffalo was walking down the hill when we saw him, I snapped a couple of shots, but he was pretty far away for a snap shot.

Chuck has Leica with a zoom lens, he will have much better shots.
