Day 6 - my bike needs a sail

Because it was that dang windy today. Did 550 miles in 9 hours with wind gusts up to 40mph. Started in Denver and ended up in Topeka tonight...and I'm wiped. Today was the first time the whole trip that my butt started to hurt...but after the 5th hour I think my brain was focusing more with staying on the road than my butt. So, that first pic pretty much sums up my ride in Kansas today...2 things you'll find all over the mid-west: Diners and Liquor. Also, my mirror broke as I was getting on the bike...grrrrr, but nothing a little gaffers tape can't fix, right?
