Day 41: Saturday, August 1, 1981
We had a short day today. And tomorrow will be even shorter.
Not much happened today. We rode. We stopped for a snack in Glasco and for lunch in Miltonvale. In Clay Center, we met two bikers headed west. They said they had had a lot of rain. It sounds as if we've been several days behind the rain all across Kansas.
At the airport outside Clay Center, I stopped to talk with two men who were finishing restoration on a pre-World War II Navy trainer biplane. They said it had been in storage since 1949.
We had planned on a budget of $10/day to cover food and camping expenses. It hasn't been working out. Of course, I spent a bundle on new bicycle parts in Seattle, and then bought a new tent in Missoula. Those expenses aside, it works out more like $20/day!
