We’re currently on Day 12 of a 14 day ride. There is no forward progress today, though. We’re holed up in a hotel in Liberal KS while Mother Nature carries on outside! So far on this trip we’ve been delayed leaving our overnight stops 3 times because of severe weather. Van Horn Tx, Hillsboro, Tx, and now Liberal Ks. That doesn’t count the day off we took in Kansas City because of severe weather. At least there we stayed with friends and had a great time revving up their little kids! I think they were second guessing the offer to stay there.

Of all the trips we’ve done, we have never experienced weather delays like this. A little rain and wind is no trouble, but as I type this the weather radar shows some very ugly stuff headed this way. Well, if anyone should know how to build a hotel to withstand tornadoes, it SHOULD be Kansas folks!

On the plus side, the rest of the trip was awesome. We got another taste of Ozark riding with great friends, got a chance to visit @Donnieontheroad, and try some roads never done before. Even Oklahoma has some awesome back roads. ? And, as usual, we met and had great conversations with people along the way.

So, hopefully this stuff is gone in the morning and we can take the next 2 days to get home. Until then, we’ll buckle down eating chips and M&Ms, since that’s about all available in the lobby. Probably order a pizza delivered for dinner...if someone actually will! ?

Nothing like the adventures of motorcycle travel! ?

Enjoyed the short time visiting with you and Candie ... Definitely quality time ... but way to short.


As for as the take on the weather...

Take want you get while on the open road. I wish I were you. I surely miss being on the road with the wing!

My Best!

Donnie

Do NOT ride anywhere in the vicinity of this man and his sweet wife.(Candie) Since someone named Fred messed with his black bike, it has manifested a major malfunction and now causes consistent weather anomalies, especially tornadoes wherever it goes. We have sent an appeal to the board administrators to officially change his name to “Mistertwister”. (As a subtle reminder of these dangerous tendencies)

Riders Beware,!!

Consider yourselves duly warned...

Tornadoes! Heck, every time he rides north we all get inundated with forest fires.
Maybe it's his pegs causing sparks.
I doubt it's Candi throwing cigarette butts off the back of the Wing.

If you were curious, there WAS a tornado north of Flagstaff yesterday. Most likely an EF -4, but still a twister...

He is practicing and his superpower is increasing by the hour. His superpower reach has extended from a few miles to hundreds?...

... and now is expanding his repertoire to include other natural disasters. Where is Superman??

Geeeez....we’ll be home today, so all the weather anomalies across the country will subside, except in Phoenix, I guess...??
