Run For The Wall XXII 2010: Day 5 – Goodland, KS to Junction City, KS

We left Goodland, Kansas after our Sunday morning worship service and riders’ meeting.  This was our first year in Goodland and the town treated us very well.  We later found out that Goodland had some tornado activity Sunday evening.

We left Goodland and traveled to Oakley, Kansas for lunch.  Lunch was terrific as usual (especially the homemade, spicy dill pickles!); however, we had to gather downtown to eat instead of their veteran’s memorial due to the field being too wet from all the recent bad weather they had a few days prior.

From there, we traveled to our dinner and overnight destination, Junction City, Kansas.  Junction City is home to Fort Riley where the “Big Red One” 1st Infantry Division is based.

When we arrived in Junction City, I could not believe all of the people who had turned out to welcome us home and the unbelievable number of US flags they were waving.

The American Legion provided us a wonderful dinner consisting of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and other great items, all which was prepared by an Army cook.

We also managed to dodge a huge thunderstorm just before reaching Junction City.
