Default Kansas is boring...

There were grain elevators to be seen every so often.

Where there was an elevator there was usually a flashing yellow light (or even a stop sign) and a few houses.

Once in a while there would be a gas station.

It was boring to me but marginally safer than the dirt road grids (sans any stop signs) of OK, which had been our original plan.

Try to stay awake!
On a previous trip, I went through Kansas and remember seeing a tree...Made my day!
