Only Kansas Remains
21.07.2015 - 22.07.2015
Everybody says they hate to travel through Kansas, but I was glad to see it.
Missouri seemed so messy. The highway, like Pennsylvania, was cluttered with those 1/10 mile markers and more huge billboards even more frequent than the markers. Poor Ladybird Johnson is rolling over in her grave and chasing down Senator Stuart Symington's ghost because of what Missouri has done to the Beautify America Campaign.
I'll take Kansas any day over Missouri - Well, that is one good long day! And if you are Paula, you will turn it into two days.
As a matter of fact, I think I will schedule a fall spring camping trip in the Ol' ' 95 just to see all the little museums and silos throughout western Kansas.
I visited Amelia Earhart's birthplace in Atchison.
I met a man from the Ukraine visiting this house. When he was a youth and living as part of the USSR, he discovered information on Amelia Earhart. He became so fascinated because all he knew about the US was the cold war propaganda. He specifically came here on a tour of AE sites in the USA.
I also spent four hours at the Eisenhower Museum and Boyhood Home.
Unfortunately, along with my camera recharger my enthusiasm for snapping photos seemed to get lost somewhere in Pennsylvania.
I failed to get any pictures of the amazing Kansas horizon, the rainstorms, and the roadside rest stops less than 50 miles apart, in one of which I spent the night.
