Today is our only planned "down day" on the trip. We are just marking time in the Kansas City area so that I can see Cher and Cyndi Lauper in concert tonight.
Tim took Boone and I to lunch at the original Minsky's near Westport today. Minsky's is a popular pizza chain in and around Kansas City, and their pizza is delicious! On the way there we passed the Intercontinental Hotel where Tim said that Cher and her road crew were undoubtedly staying - and sure enough, I could see three tour buses in the underground parking garage.
The team of oxen have eaten more than their share of fine Kansas prairie grass, the supplies are packed tightly into the wagon, and we are ready to roll on toward South Dakota early in the morning.
