Day 2, Sunday, June 5th - Great Bend to Liberal, via Wichita

An expensive day.  Tire was down to 22 psi this AM, so called NTB in Wichita - they have a tire that'll fit.  So, aired up the tire and started backtracking via KS-96 at an easy 56 mph.  the tire stayed up, and at least I was getting good mileage.  Yep, NTB had a tire, and I was out in an hour, less $200. 

While waiting at NTB, I had time to change tonight's reservation to Liberal KS.  It's US-54 all the way. Stopped en route to tour Greensburg, KS, & see their rebuilding effort.  Then on to Liberal, arriving about 4:30.  Dinner at Cattleman's Cafe - you can't go wrong with chicken fried steak, meatloaf or pot roast.

Tomorrow we get back on schedule.  It'll be US-54 to Guymon, US-64 to Raton (with a side trip to Capulin Volcano), and I-25 to Las Vegas (NM).

325 miles today, 647 for the trip.
