We have know enter our seven state, 110 miles in the saddle today! We are 1.4 miles short of 1,700 miles. The morning started out with a high wind warning! Things along the way, the truck battery went dead, Janice got sand burr's on her butt, you can guess how that happened! Passed a guy on a horse, John and I turned to find out his story, he started in Lexington KY and is riding to Los Angeles, CA his sister lives in Gauley Bridge! Bobby and I found a dead rattle snake with 7 rattles and button, we had to bring it to John Francis, John was not sure that we where hearing the rattle snakes in the canyons. I was informed by a local in Atwood that we are in the foothill of Kansas not the flatlands. Good day in the saddle.
