FYIA quick update. We're planning on taking Old Hwy 50 from Ottawa down to Cassoday. On the way home, we'll take the scenic HWY 177 to Council Grove, and then take 56 east back to Gardner. For our Topeka friend, 75 crosses 56, so you can break off. Planning on filling up in Gardner (or Ottawa), then Emporia, then Council Grove. Overall trip looks to be about 272 miles. Here's a link with it mapped out. http://mapq.st/1pc52n7
Looking forward to a good ride!
I asked a buddy that lives down there. He said it goes 2 miles outside of town. I also looked it up online. It looks to be a local project. I haven't ridden chip and seal. From driving it, I know the new stuff would be bad for a group, but if it had a couple of weeks, maybe it wouldn't be that bad. Thoughts?FYI
came down 50 this weekend in truck, it's new chip and seal (at least Williamsburg area)
never mind, map shows running I-35 not the old highway 50
