The last time I wrote anything here was when we had just crossed over the Mississippi River and were stopped for the night in Little Rock, Arkansas. Here is a picture of our trailer home following us down the road: We traveled more than 1000 miles in three days, pulling our home behind us. We usually don’t like to go that far so quickly. The main reason why is we get so tired doing it. But, we had to get to USI RV Park in Wichita for a temporary job, so we did.
Here is a picture of the flooding in Arkansas along I-40. I am sure the water is up even more than this because it has rained some more since we went through there.
I like to stop at all the welcome centers for the states we go through. The one in Oklahoma was nice. They gave us free coffee, and Jim took my picture with the Indian guy there:
The Kansas welcome center is more than 20 miles inside the state line. I told Jim they want to be sure you’re really coming to Kansas before they welcome you to their state. There was a McDonald’s restaurant there, but they didn’t give us anything free to eat or drink, just a map of Kansas so we could find our way out of there when we got ready to leave.
The Kansas countryside in early spring is much like that in Oklahoma, only a little greener.
We have enjoyed our stay in Kansas, but we are leaving tomorrow, because we got the telephone call we have been waiting for from the National Park Service at the Grand Canyon. We will get there sometime Saturday, and start working a day or two later. We are really excited about our new jobs.
