Change of Plans (aka Motorcycle Trip: Day 2)

After the trip to Salt Lake City (6+ hours drive, 8+ hours total time) and Boulder (8+ hours drive, 11+ hours total time) I've re-evaluated my criteria for the remainder of the trip. The drive time for a single day should be no more than 6 or 7 hours, so as not to get to the next stop completely exhausted, too late and unable to do much of anything. I want to be able to relax a little and actually converse with my host for a while, to visit with them, rather than just drop dead on their door step.

As such I'll be finding a place to stop around 5 hours to Kansas City and continuing on the rest of the way the next day. It is just under 10 hours drive time from Boulder, CO to Kansas City, MO. I'm also leaving Boulder semi-late as it's still very chilly outside (*brrrr* for motorcyclists) so I'm waiting until 10 or 11am for it to warm up.

I wouldn't mind staying at each place at least a full day to get out in the city a little, but it's kind of late to arrange that at this point. Maybe another time or later in the trip. I would have to re-reschedule with too many people at this point to do that. Although that does make trying to find a CS host in St Louis seem a little ... lame. *shrug* Oh well. Too late.
