Travel Day - May 26th

Posted on 29th May, 2018

Today doesn't really have much to talk about - as it was only ever going to be a travel day. We decided that the main risk for Sunday would be in north-east Colorado or the Nebraska panhandle. We had a leisurely start to the day in Elk City (Oklahoma), with a quick breakfast before hitting the road. Our target was initially to make it to Colby in Kansas.


Adam started the driving today and our plan was to have lunch in Liberal, Kansas, where we enjoyed a Subway. The ladies that served us were very interested in our language and culture - asking many questions and also getting us to speak in our British accents.


I took over the driving from here. Olly checked the models and thought we should have been a bit further east, so we re-routed to Burlington in Colorado. Olly outdid himself in finding our location for the night, the Western Motor Hotel. Let's just say it reminded me of the Bates motel from Psycho. It was a bit of a dive.


We walked up to the local restaurant - The Dish Bowl, which was fantastic. Great service, good beers and a brilliant meal - meatballs and spaghetti. I tried the Dead Guy ale (tall, of course), whilst the lads enjoyed watermelon margaritas. This made the waitress's order check rather peculiar - "So that's two margaritas and a tall Dead Guy". Not every day that you hear that. 


The alcohol helped a little on our way back to the hotel, it wasn't  great place to stay and, amongst the chasers we know, it had the nickname of the "Burlington Murder Hotel". Well, you can't have it all and you have to take the good places with the bad. Night all!
