Day​ 12 Mile 436 to 501

Day​12, an unremarkable 65 miles (105 km) across Kansas. Beginning to meet more western bound riders, all ready to be finished with Kansas.


An intensely hot afternoon and minimum sleep last night with blaring mariachi music at 2 am sent me to a discount hotel with a/c once again. I do prefer camping but sitting around in 98 F (37 C) weather waiting for the sun to go down is not that much fun either.


Lunch at El Dos de Oros was a high point with nice Mexican food.
