The train ride let me catch up on some bill paying and paperwork for Medicare, and writing the earlier blog post. On arriving in Kansas City, I was glad to see that Union station was still in almost pristine shape, and that many of its nooks and crannies are being used for active businesses. There was an informative display on the railroad mail workers. I rode up to the World War I memorial and then headed to my warm showers host Mark.

After a very refreshing beer, he needed a shift cable and I needed a dry lube for the dusty back roads and trails. We got that at Cycle City which, conveniently, is right next door to River Bluff Brewing where we had a cold one, then headed to dinner at Moretina’s Caddy Shack and a tasty and filling pizza.

Heading to bed early tonight and planning to get on the road by 7:30 tomorrow morning to go to Atchison. Gnite!
