Travel, Food, and Slices of Life

On Our Way: 2 days on the road

Leave a comment

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. st louisa

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.lunch in Kansas City

Into Kansas we enjoyed the rolling Flint Hills,DSCF5495 and later passed through a massive wind farm. KS wind farm

In interesting contrast a few of the farms that could be seen from I-70 still had working old wind turbines.KS wind farmab

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

Author: GoingPlaces Can-Do Zero Waste

I moved to McMinnville a few years ago and was impressed with its friendliness and the beauty of the surrounding countryside. I write several blogs. GoingPlacesLivingLife is my personal blog related to travel, food and just general thoughts. Can-Do Real Food tells about my business processing local produce from small farms and preserving it by canning and dehydrating. The concept of Zero Waste appeals to me because we can truly reduce what gets tossed into the landfill with very small changes in our lifestyle. Join us.
