On Our Way: 2 days on the road

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
