Where We are Now and What We Saw Last Night

We are in Garnett, Kansas right now but moving on. This is the third town we have rode through today. We hope to at least make it to a small town to camp at.

Last night we camped at a farm where we saw turkeys, chicken, deer, goats and horses. Waji was ok with the deer but a little nervous around the turkeys and chicken. Before we bunked down for the night, Waji watched the horses for hours from the comfort of my lap.

Bike Tire Blow Out This Time

The front tire on the bike blew out this time as we were going downhill, so we had a spill. Waji is fine but my feet and lower legs got scraped up. A little hard to walk so not sure how riding bike will be. So we are going to go to a nearby town where someone said they were having a festival this weekend. Probably will spend a couple days there so I can recoup. At least we had a spare tire for the bike along so I do not need to go looking for one.

Other tire on trailer blew out today but is now fixed. Also lost a pin for trailer so did a temporary fix since there was no part to be found in the town I'm in. Hopefully it will hold up until I get to the next big town and get it replaced with the proper part.

Kindness of strangers

Just goes to show you how nice people are in this area. Not only did a guy help out a total stranger in need of help, but a guy from Winston had traveled down after seeing my post on facebook. He found me at Walmart. I can not thank these people enough.

Help has arrived!

A gentleman stopped to help me out so thanks but he will be taking me into town to try finding the tire I need that blew out on the trailer.

Need help please!

Had blow out on 69 south of Winston and north of Cameron. Could anyone find a 16 by 1.75 tire and get it to me @ 218 239 0449 or if have pick up to transport me and Waji with bike and trailer to Cameron so I can find one there hopefully it would be very much appreciated.
