I love traveling the back roads and hwy 50 is a great one. Many small interesting towns and light traffic. You can take it all the way to Ohio.

|No shoulder. Don't look down|
|Monarch Pass 11.312 feet. Open, no chains required.|

|222 slow intense miles.|
|Tucked in at Beymer Park, KS. Its Free. The wind will rock me to sleep.|
Yesterday marked the beginning of my 6th year on the road. It has been a great adventure. Great new friends and wonderful places visited. What a great country we live in.
