i have personally visited EVERY COUNTY and almost every town in ks.
IF the attraction has a guest book, i've signed it.
IF they sell an edible, i've et it...
and if the stop has a potty, i've used it.
so, lani, what follows is a tornado of random kansas thoughts
u have done some research and picked a few items ?
LIST THEM HERE so we know what is what so far...
HOW MANY DAYS are planned to cross ahs ?
WHO/WHAT is in your travel posse ?
and wadda they/u wanna EAT?
where do u like to camp?
do you collect rocks
like lucy n desi or
-nicodemus is nearly GONE as a settlement.
-and really not of interest to most
-who aren't into black history in america
-or the selling of "rail road" towns...
-the garden of eden is cool,
-but wacky has gone TACKY and
-commercial efforts there, now rule...
-the world's largest gopher is tired,
-and the 5 legged cow needs shoes.
-many interesting military sites from custer to ike...
-injun stuff too if you like.
-a sod house or 2 is pretty impressive,
-but keep in mind kansans are repressive.
-without mountain vistas or costal wonder...
-we tend to treasure things that wander.
-so tell us MORE and the advice can be specific
-but there ain't nothing here like the pacific.
-and the BALL of twine is sagging...
-so much so it's pathetic.
btw check out this bunch of nutcases, they've charted MANY of the especially wacky, special places in ahs...
