We left Hays at around 10 am this morning and stopped at Bank of America to deposit a check. On the Hays map it says that it is the German capital of Kansas! Fantastik! Also, the mall in Hays is actually just called "THE MALL" So apparently every time I've ran to the mall, it hasn't been the "real" mall because that is in the middle of Kansas. Other things in the middle of Kansas, you ask? Well that would be nothing. A lot like eastern Washington--flat, brown, and green in places.
We stopped in Salina to fill up and to grab a bite at Wendy's. Now we are off to Kansas City, then to Osage Beach, Missouri to visit with Tabitha.
Oh I forgot to mention that driving from Denver to Hays we were listening to "midnight trucker radio". It was kinda funny.
So we are almost to Osage Beach, Missouri. Tabitha is putting us up in the "Scottish Inns" for the night. Quite fitting:) I think Kansas City was nice, but we drove through it during rush hour, which sucked. I think I got a picture of Arrowhead/Kaufman Stadium as they are right next to each other. Evey has been driving all day long today. Her own choosing. We luckily scraped up enough change to pay for the toll on the Kansas Turnpike (which is just I-70 east from Topeka to Kansas City). We hit the starbucks in Lawrence, Kansas (rock chalk jayhawk) to get a couple of strawberry and cream fraps, which was a nice treat. So here comes Osage Beach, and I think our doggie officially hates our guts now.
We just got back from Tabitha's house after going to Denny's first for some eats. Tab's mom, who is a riot, was staying there for a couple of days as well. So we visited with them and looked at our wedding pics and just relaxed and drank some wine. Tomorrow we plan to hang out for a while and then take off, probably in the late afternoon sometime.
