July 9: Marie-Eve got sick in Ness City, Kansas, where we spent a few days in order for her to recouperate. (It's not always easy being a team player!) Finally feeling better, we were able to get underway again, landing in Larned, KS. Here's my bike, parked at the barracks at old Fort Larned, Kansas. Established on the vast prairie in western Kansas, troops stationed at Fort Larned protected mail coaches, freighters and other Trail traffic. As the site of an Indian Agency, Fort Larned also was instrumental in maintaining friendly relations with Plains Indians.
