Today we left Nebraska and at approximately 2:10 PM we walked into Kansas...Nebraska route 112 turns into Kansas route 148...at the end of the day we stopped just south of Hanover, KS...we logged 22.8 miles (36.7742 km's) with 48,509 steps...findings for the day: 1 odd clamp that works on the same principle as a caulking gun...no wildlife sighted...today I walked for my best friend on the planet, Stan Lucas who served in the Marines and was discharged due to unscheduled landing of a helicopter and his father Edward Lucas who served in the US Army during WWII and Korea, thank you both for your service!!!...the first 12 miles were decent with a gentle breeze slightly to my right side and back, once with turned south the wind picked up, fortunately it was not cold but it was rather stiff once the road turned into Kansas route 148 the shoulder COMPLETELY disappeared!!!...wind AND no shoulder and oncoming rush hour traffic!!!...ahh but the "martyr mantle" saved me once again!!!...a couple of PowerBall tickets AND a half rack of ribs later my feet are in ice water, a cold beer in my hand and very ready for a day off tomorrow to sleep in, run errands ad to call my attorney to see how best to claim the $500 million!!!...a special shout out goes to Bryan Breeden (of custom knife making fame!!!) who stopped me on route 8 and slipped me a generous donation, Camp Utada will find it useful, turns out Bryan has an aunt that has diabetes and Bryan served with the marines, thank you for your service and the donation...cheers!!!
