Kansas! wooooooo-eeeee. Our first day in Kansas had us wakin up in our tent to a blustery, whippin Kansas prairie storm, tumbleweeds literally blowing across the road. The storm held out until after our second gas up, then it came down, wet and heavy and things got slippery. We stopped for burgers and chicken-fried steak @HappyDayDiner in Lincoln Kansas, met some quail hunters, and chained up the rear tires. We spent the rest of the day doing the steady 30mph chain shuffle into Salina, Kansas. Saw lots of folks swervin off the road, crossing the median, and ambulances haulin to the scene.
Clementine(truck) shrugged off the storm like the well seasoned, Montana truck she is. We holed up there in a $35Motel, with Pizza, the internet, and Discovery Channels brilliant show, GunSmoke. What a welcome to Kansas.
