Thankfully woke up to a gloomy morning and only light headwind. We are really glad we stayed off route in Sterling instead of Nickerson because like James said yesterday, “You ain’t missing NOTHING in Nickerson.”
In Hesston we took a short cut on Old 81 straight to Newton. It saved us 5 miles but we had to ride on a busy road with no shoulder.
Cassoday is also prairie chicken capital! Or so their sign says. We didn’t see any.
