Road Trip

I work on the car while Harland supervises.

Harland(hubby) and I took a road trip this weekend for a whirlwind tour of north central Kansas and a sidetrip into Nebraska.  We left right after I got off work on Friday. We visited many interesting places, met new people, and made some new friends. For my part, I further perfected my farmer’s tan and acquired 3 more chiggers.  I also took over 400 pics. We got home late Sunday evening. I unpacked, took my shower, fell into bed, and was asleep in about 2 seconds.  I’ll have a chance to go through my pics tonight after work, and will have posts all week about our travels, including a prairie named after a famous American author and a visit to her childhood home, a Pawnee Indian village museum, an orphan train museum, and a visit to the world’s largest ball of twine. We also stopped at a 100 year old limestone church and a gallery full of tiny carvings of amazing animated people, animals, and vehicles- the life’s work of one man.

Stay tuned all week for posts about our crazy travels.

Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    Do you mind saying where you live? I’m just curious because I grew up in Jewell Co. which is near all these things you visited. Nice to hear a little about “home”. Love your blog.

      Hi Tami,
      Thank you! We live in NE Kansas about an hour west of St. Joe. We drove all over Jewell county and it is a beautiful county, a hidden gem. Love the wide openness of the countryside there.
      Stop by again,
      Suzanne

  2. Looking forward to seeing your photos from your travels. Sounds like a great get-a-way. Some day I will go on a get-a-way…but until then, I will live vicariously through yours! Ha Ha!! I’ve been going a little stir crazy lately with the kids at home and my hubby working 12 hour days.

      Bonnie,
      Oh dear. Well, feel free to live vicariously, but keep in mind that you’ll have to spend 2 nights sleeping on rather hard hotel mattresses, and one night listening to an air-conditioner that my husband said sounded like a grain dryer. (LOUD)

  3. Woops! I forgot…I wanted to say something about that old photo on your post. What the heck were those two thinking?! Hilarious! I love it! Wonder if they ever got out of that mess!!

      Hi Bonnie,
      Don’t you love it. It wasn’t uncommon for early cars to get stuck a lot because there were almost no paved roads in America back then. A real mess.
      Take care.

    Farmer’s tan: good. Chiggers: bad. Weekend trip with hubby: Priceless! I look forward to hearing all about it and traveling vicariously through you.

    I’m ready and waiting with a large mug of coffee to enjoy your forthcoming posts. The preview showing ‘you’ in disguise and hard at work has whipped up my expectations.

  6. I’m baaaack…,taking a peek at your blog. Can’t wait to see your pictures! Did you stop in Omaha, that is where I live( well just north about 20 miles)

    Glad your home safe and sound!

    And if you EVER come into Colorado you must come see us. But you will have to drive over the Rocky Mountains.
