Kansas is getting interesting
« on: March 09, 2020, 10:19:48 PM »
If you ever rode through Kansas you know why they're doing this:

Been across twice.  Even at 100+mph the state takes too long to get across.

Yeah, last time I made Toepeker it was about 10pm and dark.  Had this weird feeling the road to the hotel wasn't dead level.

Damn near as flat as Flordia, but without the pythons and alligators.

What they really need are some big ole concrete dinosores.

Next trip I'm going to give Oklahoma a try.  Been through Iower and Nebraska about 8 or 9 times.  Not much better than Kansas.   The speed limit needs to be 110mph on I-80.
