The hotel was fine overnight, and we were up early with the help of the alarm to get going in time to make it to Spivey, Kansas before the post office closed at 11:15 a.m. This trip was through the backroads of Oklahoma and Kansas on mostly two-lane roads without much traffic. We pulled into Spivey about 10:45 and drove first to the post office. I created and printed postcards at home with a sunflower photo and "Greetings from Spivey, Kansas" on them to mail to all the Spiveys whose physical addresses we have. I took the cards inside the post office and asked the young woman working there if they could be postmarked locally. She did that for me stamping them clearly in red. I also mailed one to us.
After dropping off the postcards, we drove back to the edge of town to make photos of the city limit and welcome signs. We also stopped by a tower (water maybe) labeled Spivey. We drove into Lawrence, Kansas for the night and had dinner at a nice brewpub downtown, the Free State Brewing Co.
