Garden City, KS
Missed blogging yesterday so I'll catch up. We spent two nites in McCook, NE at the free city park so Kathy could go to Harlan County to check on some genealogy stuff to prove there is an Irish connection in her family. There is. Today we did 185 miles in constant wind from 15 to 25 with a few higher gusts. This really dropped our mileage. We fueled up where US 83 crosses I70. Cheapest diesel so far at 3.72.9/gal cash price. We also picked up a new Flying J/Pilot fuel card two days ago that saves 3 cents per gallon. So here we are in Garden City at RJ's RV Park, a former KOA. Its a nice enough park although the spaces are a little narrow. Nice to have sewer and water after 2 nites but the cable TV is the best. Tomorrow we will go to Dodge City, KS to tour as well as look around Garden City. We may stay an extra night here as the wind is expected to last 2 more days. Then its on to Amarillo, TX 220 miles down the road.
