Day 5 took us 69 miles to Arkansas City. The day got off to an amusing start with the discovery that we had a high-wheeled penny-farthing rider on the course. The town of Caldwell has a colorful wild-west shoot-out history told on a series of markers downtown. Near Drury, down a sleepy old road, is a neat old mill dam. Finally, I got to see the Arkansas River with actual water in it. That's not true out around Dodge...
