After a delay because of the moving van loading later than expected….and taking longer than expected….we did not leave on August 31 as planned but on September 1. We spent our first evening visiting with cousins in St. Louis. It was the easiest driving I have ever had through that city because of the Sunday traffic.
The second day is one of our longest planned drives. We left around 7:30 and finally pulled into our planned stop in Colby, Kansas 12 hours later. But we enjoyed lunch in Kansas City with a woman who lived in my neighborhood back in New Jersey. Although I did not know her then we have connected through the neighborhood group and I am happy that Bernie Kitzpatrick is now a real friend.
Into Kansas we enjoyed the rolling Flint Hills, and later passed through a massive wind farm.
In interesting contrast a few of the farms that could be seen from I-70 still had working old wind turbines.
On the domestic front, the cat is a great traveler and has decided she likes the soft-sided carry case to lie in even while in the car
