We just drove 380 miles from east of Kansas City to Oakley, KS. We had to go 55 MPH because it's so hot that if we went any faster our engine would over heat. Thank goodness the generator kept working so we could have some A/C.
When we built a house in Chuluota, Matt and Amanda said we were really in the sticks. They have never been to Oakley, Kansas at the High Plains Campground. I asked the lady at check-in if it was this desolate from here to Denver and she said no, it's worse. I can't imagine what it was like to make this trip in a covered wagon. Those people must have been hard as nails.
The good news is that we have high speed Internet. The bad news is that I can't get the satellite to work. Oh well, another night of "Frasier".
I can't wait to get to the mountains. Denver is about 250 miles away.
