The brothers stopped at a Walmart. As always, one went inside and the other stayed with the bikes. Suddenly he heard loud sirens, and people ran into Walmart. No, it wasn’t a special sale 🙂 , it was a tornado drill. On the left, see a picture of a siren-post, one of many in the area.
As a commenter pointed out earlier, wind is the big challenge now. The terrain would allow the boys to ride 17-18 mph, but all they can do is an average of 9 mph, due to constant headwind. They were told not to expect any changes until they reach the Rockies.
Tonight Peter and Janos spend the night in a very small town that has a total area of 0.4 square miles (1.0 km2) and a population of 170. They sleep right next to a gas station, that is not in service, but the electric outlet on its outside wall still works… In the past week or so they don’t even set up the tent, they just put the sleeping bags on the ground.
