Apr 04 – MO to KS

I plan my long trips with the longest days at the beginning, and the shortest days at the end. The first and second days were 500 miles each. Then I crossed a time zone.

Today is the third day on the road. I drove 419 miles at an average of 16.8mpg. Mostly flat roads once I got to Kansas. There was a stretch of 10 miles of controlled burns. Happy to confirm my Jeep’s closed vents worked perfectly.

Lots of trickers along I-70, and they were all on their CBs. The reception was good but it was hard to tell what the heck they were talking about. A lot of chatter about bears and pigs. Whatever.
