Wichita, KS–So, I have to apologize for not posting to the blog yesterday. Since I was traveling in a different van, with different people, I decided to try something different with my live stream. Since I had access to a consistent power source, I decided to stream non-stop for the day, so I did not have a chance to do any regular updates. I will however upload the pictures that I took yesterday, under the post called Day 4.
Today, I decided to do the same thing and stream non-stop, so I don’t have as many pictures as I would normally have taken. I’ll go back to taking more pictures beginning tomorrow.
So, today, we traveled from Denver, CO to Wichita, KS. To be honest, I wasn’t altogether impressed with the scenery. There really was nothing to see once we got into eastern Colorado…just dry plains as far as the eye could see.
We did have a great stop in the city of Colby, KS however. We stopped at this really cute little bar/restaurant called Mabel’s. We met both the owner of the bar, and the owner of the building. Both were extremely warm and welcoming, and they even made us a plate of something wonderful, of which for the life of me, I can’t remember what it’s called. I did take a picture of it, and have included it with this post. Lunch was fantastic, and I don’t remember the last time I had a bacon cheeseburger that tasted so good.
We arrived in Wichita around 9:30pm, and we drove to the Peace & Social Justice Center of South Central Kansas, where we were greeted by about 7 or 8 people with open arms. We also found out that we will be adding one more person to our group, by the name of Richard. He will be the first addition to our group since we left Oakland.
We will be staying in Wichita for 2 nights, and then heading to Oklahoma City, OK, where we will be converging with the southern caravan. That will be nice as I will be able to see some of my friends that I made in LA from when we went to Chicago. I only hope that the southern route is having as much of a good time with their group as I am with ours.
Anyways, I’m sorry that today’s post is not in as much detail as my previous ones. I will get back to my normal updates tomorrow as I am able.
