Head for the Hills 2012 day 3

Liberal KS to Fort Morgan CO. 2 years back we drove all the way across Kansas, east to west, on 2 lane roads and enjoyed every mile. Today we drove south to north on 2 lane roads. We saw where America's food comes from. Wheat fields that go as far as you can see, which here is a looooong way! Corn, beef...and all of it was on smooth straight roads with no traffic. Perfect to unwind and see the side of the USA that is not possible from the interstate system. We stopped at small town parks and watched...

Head for the Hills 2012 day 0 and 1

Day 0, kinda weird? well we left early to beat the traffic on the day "1" and made the jump over to Vicksburg...

Official Day "1" is from V'burg to Lake Texohma where we crashed a HoTCU WBCCI rally. Low voltage kept us from staying right next to some really cool vintage 'Streams but the visit was a high point!

Here is todays video link...

We are headed out Thursday night (if the house sitter shows up) for a 2+ week trip and figured we would share.

Truck is loaded, camper is clean and packed, Mac has his tennis ball. All that is left is to buy the last of the grocery's and head West!
