On New Years Day our CMA chapter always does a New Years Day run. We went to the Pizza Hut in Larned again this year and filled the basement room. The temperature was about 6 degrees warmer than last year, but, at 28 degrees, it was still cool. My fingers were much warmer this year than last year when I rode my 1995 K75s BMW.
On January 20, 2003, I had the day off so I headed
out with the intention of going to Oklahoma. Seomthing happened,
though, since I went north instead of south and found myself visiting Russell,
Kansas, for a short time before heading over to Hays. While there
I rode through the campus of Fort Hays State University where I went to
school, and I had opportunities to talk with a number of people at each
stop I made in town. After leaving Hays, I went back toward Russell,
but continued to Bunker Hill where I stopped at the Bear House Cafe and
Truck Stop on I-70. Again, I had the opportunity to talk with a number
of people there before I hit the road for home.
