Kansas is much warmer than the previous states I explored. I woke up without shivering, and hadn't even wrapped myself in every piece of fabric I owned the night before. I can get into this.
There wasn't much in Bazine, or at the Oasis, in ways of food, so we pushed 22 miles away to a small town (I forget the name) and Effie's Place. At Effie's, we had coffee and cinnamon loaf. Effie, the 90 year old proprietor (not kidding), charged us 25 cents each for the pick me up. The good deal, and the good coffee, purged the last of the McDeath from me.
If that didn't do it, running into Alexander, KS certainly did.
