Day 4 – Not Quite Wichita

We didn’t go all the way to Wichita, but instead we are in McPherson, KS. Tom has been doing all the driving. The truck is 24 feet and the car carrier makes it even longer. He’s just awesome. I have offered to drive, but he insists on doing it all. Tom rocks!

We were going to go to Wichita today, but he got tired and so we stopped. It was the best thing to do. We had dinner at the restaurant next door and have been resting for the evening.

It seems the parts of the states we have gone through are just the dry flat areas. I know there are other parts that are beautiful and colorful. I just found it amusing that we didn’t hit any of them.

Here are some pictures from our road trip today.

You know, I somehow got behind on your blog. I switched over to the blog reader in the Blogger dashboard and I think I entered your site wrong. Well, I clicked on it today (in my favorites list) and saw that you were almost in Wichita! After backtracking a few weeks, I saw that you're moving to Dallas! Good luck with that! It really is a very beautiful and unique city. I hope you enjoy it. It's a big change from where you've been, though I'm sure you know that.

So did you play any car trip games while doing all that driving through that flat land? Hee hee. Hope your trip and move go smoothly.

This is quite the road trip your on! Too bad you haven't had any really amazing fall scenery...at least that would make the long drive more bearable.

Dave's mom was born in McPherson KS. I have never longed to go see it tho. Thanks for the updates, every day I have been asking Jill, "how far do you think they are today?" so she has been reading your blog faithfully. Love you!!! Helen

Staying on the interstates are always boring to me, but traveling like you are, and in a hurry, that is the only way.
