Day 33 Sterling to Great Bend 41 miles


We were having a chat with two paramedics at breakfast this morning and unbeknown to us they payed for our breakfast ,if you are reading this Caren thank you so much. We flew the first 10 miles into Lyons with the huge wind behind us,but as we turned west the wind became a cross wind which made it very difficult to make any quick progress.We were again up at 1800 ft all day and in "wheat and oil"country, with huge grain stores and hundreds of small OIl pumps ,pumping oil and water into storage tanks,you could smell the oil as we approached these tanks.The main town on the way was Ellinwood totally dedicated to the oil and grain business and with a great choice in churches. Our stop tonight is in Great Bend, hopefully the wind tommor will be more kind.

  2. Them paramedics obviously felt you needed a good feed before you went any further. I’m following your route on my Wal-mart road atlas, very primitive but effective. Nadal won the French open, just incase your interested. Delighted to see that you are still on track and hope that the wind will always be at your back.

  3.
