Walnut to Eureka, Kansas was just short of 90 miles and fairly uneventful. The morning was fairly rough. Although it was mostly flat, we were heading straight in to a headwind. After only 20 miles we made a pit stop for what has become my favorite treat, a massive Powerade slush from Sonic and an icy water that is just as big.
Although the strong gusts did not subside I ended up catching my own second wind. Along the next 70 miles there was time for photo shoots on rolls of hay and even a nap in a park in Coyville, a sleepy town of 40 residents.
The final 30 miles was fairly quick and ended in a city park in Eureka. Much the same as the other parks it had a public pool, a shelter (perfect of hanging my tent), a playground, and free use of showers.
After setting up shop we grabbed a bite to eat and called it an early evening.
Until tomorrow . . .
