Observations Driving in CO & KS

We took off this morning from Fort Collins, Colorado and are now in Wichita, Kansas (I can never spell Wichita correctly). I thought I’d post some lessons I’ve learned on this trip:

  • If you think you have to go to the bathroom, think you might need to go soon, or think you will at some future point in your life and you see a bathroom, STOP! I learned the hard way.
  • The first lesson can be applied to gasoline. Thankfully I applied the first lesson to this one and we were fine.
  • Giving 75 cents worth of change in mostly dimes, nickels, and pennies to a toll booth lady can get you in trouble. I thought money was money. She thought I was being “cute”. We had nothing else.
  • Even on a goofy diet, you can still find things to eat.
  • You can talk to God from any state, but He doesn’t seem to talk back when in Kansas.
  • Speaking of God and Kansas, a friend told me Kansas was “Godless”. I disagree. I think He just forgot to decorate it much.
  • Speaking of decorating the states, there was a lot of cool country-side to see. Lots of shapes from rolling hills, sharp edges, and flat.
  • There’s something kind of sad seeing the great Rocky Mountains fade to nothing in your rear-view mirror.
  • Because of a wrong turn, we saw a great sunset over the Wichita skyline. Not bad.
  • There’s a lot of country music on the stations out here

We take off for Memphis tomorrow with a short stop in Little Rock.

  • Glad you’re having a good trip back with some time to think and marvel at the world. And — are you sure that was a wrong trun you took in Witchita — or just God wanting you to see the beautiful sunset? 😉 Take care!
