June 6-7 Rode to Scott City today. About 10 miles (16 km) shorter than yesterday but the wind was a real challenge. Quartering head wind until noon, then a blasting side wind trying to push me across the road. Longer than yesterday by more than an hour. Got to the city park and decided that I didn't have the strength left to deal with the tent. Another cheap hotel with a/c tonight.
Officially below 3000 ft now at 2970 ft (905 m) for Scott City.
So they said ride West to East, sun in your eyes in the morning, but tail winds. Calling bullshit on the winds so far this trip.
