Day 17 a short 36 miles to Eureka KS to resynch with desirable stopping points and distances. Rode one 17 mile stretch with headwind that took 2 hours. Nothing to do but find a suitable gear, make as small a profile as possible and ride.
Nice city park, grocery store with a sale on 10 oz ribeye, and great company of two couples, one from Minneapolis and one from the Netherlands, both traveling west.
Dessert was 1/2 off shakes at the Sonic Drive In. Shouldn't need much food tomorrow.
