Another Brother Biking Update (Updated)

My brother hit the 2000 mile mark today, somewhere in Kansas. He is booking along. I guess he needs to make up some time before he hits western Colorado, where he will have a lot of vertical miles, as well as horizontal ones.

Here is a picture (as he had promised TheHusband) of Alexander, KS (pop'n 75).

I don't think that I have ever been in a town that small. How totally mind-blowing for this person who has never lived anywhere besides the East Coast of the US.

Sun 5/31 -- middle of nowhere, MO (84 miles)
Mon 6/1 -- Houston, MO (101 mi)
Tues, 6/2 -- Houston, MO (rest day)
Wed 6/3 -- Fair Grove, MO (81 mi)
Thu 6/4 -- Pittsburg, KS (102 mi)
Fri 6/5 -- Toronto, KS (102 mi)
Sat 6/6 -- Newton, KS (97 mi)
Sun 6/7 -- Larned, KS (108 mi)
Mon 6/8 -- Scott City, KS (121 mi!!!)

Potsdam, MN (http://tinyurl.com/ltcaxq) has a population of under 40. It's about 10 miles from where I lived from 8th grade until I graduated.

I totally knew you were going to bring up Amboy. :-)

I didn't get out of the car. And it went by so quickly.

Oberfilke. Four houses. 11 people. Or some such.

Heh, you guys have bigger, faster, louder, better (?). Let us at least keep "smaller".

I had to look it up -- the smallest German village has 5 people. It's in the Northern part of Germany.

Back on topic, sort of: I'm in awe what Danny is accomplishing.

Makes Fladungen look positively cosmopolitan... :-)

Heh. We have a post office.

Of sorts.

Heh, the smallest place I've been was Cardwell MT (pop. 400). Its only visible structures were a post office, a small schoolbuilding next to it (K-12), a touristy pottery shop across the road, and a gas station on the corner with the highway. All the residents were ranchers (I guess you can call a collection of ranches a "town").
