This picture summarizes Dodge City for me. It's a Sonic drive in restaurant next to an Arby's restaurant next to a Burger King restaurant next to a McDonald's restaurant next to a Taco Bell restaurant, all in the shadow of an enormous bank of grain towers taller than anything else around.
Today passed quietly. After back-to-back 75-mile days I figured it was time to give my knees a rest. I waded through my email, sorted photos, and caught up on my reading. Then I re-origanized my gear while listening to an old comedy album by Bette Midler, and another by Bobcat Goldthwait.
I stayed burrowed in my hotel room until evening, and then rode out only in search of food. The Thai place I found made an excellent iced tea, but their "pad thai" was made with wheat noodles and their "curry" tasted like it had steak sauce in it. Oh well. I chomped it anyway, and listened to more of "On Call In Hell".
While using the iPad I observed that all the location-aware banner ads were for joining the army.
