5/06/21 Kinsley to Hays Ks. 69 miles

I started the day by taking the joint highways 56 and 183 toward the north east for 8 miles.  It was a cold morning with the wind out of the Northeast. 

At the 8 mile mark we turned north taking highway 183.  There was little if any shoulder all the way to Rush Center where we stopped for lunch.  The café was cold so I asked for hot water to warm up.

After lunch the road shoulder got wider and we had to dodge a crop duster that flew across highway 183 numerous times in front of us.

Once in Hays we headed to a childhood friend of mine from the 60’s.  Her and her husband treated us like real people and not bicycle riders.  It was great catching up on the last 40 years.
