This evening we are in Russell, Kansas after a journey of 230 miles. We also made a stop at Oakley Kansas to visit the Blue Beacon Truck Wash so Mel could get a much needed bath. There was only one truck ahead of us, so we were back on the road in less than an hour. Most of the way here we were fighting a quartering wind which is the toughest to deal with. The prevailing wind in this part of the country is east to west. The exception to this rule is whenever I try to go east to west. Today's wind, at 30 miles per hour I might add, was from the southeast blowing to the northwest. I feel certain this will continue for the next couple of days as I move to the east, rest assured normal patterns will return as I turn around and head back west.
The rest of the day will be spent unwinding and relaxing in preparation of tomorrows journey. Driving down the road no matter what the destination is always a way to enjoy the good life.
