Hello everyone! My name is Audrey, I'm coming to you from good ol' Dodge City, Kansas. As a summer intern at the Convention and Visitors Bureau, I'll be keeping you updated and entertained on all that's happenin in the Cowboy Capital!

A little about me: I was born and raised in Western, Kansas. I'm currently a student at Fort Hays State University but have packed up for the summer and got the HECK into Dodge. I will spend the next few months reliving the legends of the old West!

I'ts been a great experience so far, as I am spending my first week playing tourist!

And remember folks...keep calm and cowboy on!!!

After an eventful morning of moving cattle with my friend and her family near Cimarron, the next morning came way too early. (Sorry Mom, that means I didn't make it to church!) I was up, bright eyed and bushy tailed, at Comanche Middle School to welcome over 850 people with Bike Across Kansas to Dodge City!

I've got to just say...WOW what an amazing group of people! Not only are their physical abilities inspirational, but everyone was so grateful for the hospitality from the City of Dodge! Speaking of inspiring...I've got to talk about these men pictured below!


To the left is John Bergey of Hesston, KS. He will be turning 88 in July and this was his 9TH TOUR for Bike Across Kansas! To the right are two men who both participate in BAK as well. They also provided the majority of my entertainment for the day! 

 I thought my grandparents would get a kick out of hearing about these men, so I called to tell them. My grandpa says their crazy, the only thing he'd ride across Kansas is his tractor! (Truth is his tractor is as old as he is...so he'd be lucky to get across the county line.) I was impressed by the number of families riding together. What a fun summer vacation to travel and learn about Kansas! 





We had trolleys running most of the day to get the many of the bikers down to the Main Street Festival! From live music, dancers, games, and food, the festival was a blast.


 The main event of the festival was by far the duck race! Richard Falcon was kind enough to let me ride along on "Duck Patrol" and get some great pictures! The proceeds from the event went to The Alley and 4-H groups. Both organizations did a great job putting the event on, with the help of several great sponsors!

It was 8:30 by the time the festival was over, so I stopped to grab a bite to eat from one of the vendors. The funnel cake and cherry limeade I got were right up there with a hamburger and red beer from Kate's! (If you don't know... that's pretty darn good!) 
Isn't it about time you got the heck into Dodge?

And remember folks...God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy!
