WICHITA, Kan.--We are back in Wichita! Yeah!
We landed in Wichita a little after 11 a.m. CDT. The first
leg of our journey this morning started at 6:47 a.m. CDT from
Sheboygan, Wis. It was the most calm ride we have had yet, we
could see for miles. Hannibal, Mo., was a 20-minute stop on the
ground, and off we went to Wichita. The ride was a little more
bumpy this time, but still beautiful. The sun was shining the
Last night at dinner we were listening to some of the women,
who have been racing for many years, recollect previous races
and their experiences. Just to see their enthusiasm after all
these years really makes us appreciate all that they have done
and overcome to make racing possible for us today.
We are glad to be in Wichita so we can finally get some rest. The race does not officially end until tomorrow, and we won't know how we finished until Sunday evening. We will write when we know our final score and placing. The banquet is Monday, and Tuesday, we leave for Battle Creek.
