We're not in Kansas anymore - Toto.

7/10/11 Pittsburg KS to Ash Grove MO 75 Miles.
Campsite Ash Grove MO, City Park/Pool

The Show Me State.

Laundry in Ash Grove MO

MO is truly different from KS.  The Ozarks. Hills.  Short, steep ups, and fast, short downs, with a lot of momentum to start up again.  It's also hot again in the high 90's
Rusty took this picture of a typical MO road.  They are very narrow too.

Ash Grove calls itself the City of Trees.  This whole area is known for it's hard woods.  We arrived about 1:30 PM and were able to relax at the pool and do our laundry.  Dinner included sweet (not very sweet) corn which an older couple gave to Dave when he befriended them.  Bed by 8:30 PM 'cause the alarm is going off at 4:30 AM.
Dave saw this couple shucking their corn.  They gave us some.

  1. It just occurred to me that you are riding in the same direction that the earth is rotating, so you can add to your average speed over the surface of the planet the speed of rotation of approx. 800 mph at your latitude. I hope that helps. You're welcome.
