One day of BAK is usually a day from Hell. This year it was Day 3, notionally from Spearville through Larned and Great Bend to Ellinwood. That morning's weather proved slightly nicer than expected, but that changed after lunch. The heavens opened and torrents of rain were driven by a howling wind. Most of us got no further than the big white equipment barn in Dundee, from which we sagged in by bus and truck. Kudos to the BAK staff and the town of Ellinwood for handling the disaster with grace.

I'm a sucker for an old steam locomotive...
