The Husbear and I left the ol’ ponderosa this morning and started our road trip to our daughter’s wedding in Las Vegas.
We ventured through five states, but mostly all Kansas, and stopped for the night in Lamar, Colorado after about 600 miles of driving.
The first stop we made was in the middle of BFE when the Husbear decides he needed to go urinate. He’s country like that.
Kansas is mostly a big-ass flat state. About the nicest thing we saw in Kansas was the sun setting.
And then there was a few hours of this.
And a smell. A horrible, horrible smell. Apparently there are a lot of cattle rendering plants in SW Kansas. And everything smells putrid.
We gained an hour somewhere in Kansas near Colorado, which is nice.
Tomorrow we will be heading deeper into Colorado doing some sightseeing, and meeting bloggers Mark of Voenix Rising and his partner Ben, as well as an old friend who used to live in NW Arkansas.
I’m tired from driving all day. Time for bed.
Until next time...

The sunset colors are really cool.
They tend to be my favorite colors of the day for some reason.
Nice that you’re visiting other bloggers on your way across country. That’s always been one of the great pleasures of traveling for me. Enjoy the trip!
This is really the first trip where I’ve planned specifically on meeting bloggers while on our journey. Previously we have been at the same place already. Not that there has been a lot of them before this.
I like the Lost Highway style photo.
I seem to have a knack for taking those for some odd reason….
Drive safely 🙂
What app does the first picture come from?
The app I was using to track our travel is called “Trip Journal“.
Will you be stopping in Phoenix to see Urspo and Someone???
We will. (And did!)
I love driving across Kansas! I’d pee on the Great Plains next to your husband, given the opportunity.
Maybe north Kansas is prettier than south Kansas. We’ll have to try that on a different trip. And considering how often the husbear pees, I’m sure there will be plenty of opportunities to mark territory.
getting caught up here –
I am mad jealous you met Mr. Voenix Rising!
Not just him, but you too! 😉
