It’s my flip for Seattle. Leaving on Thursday. Seems to be like rain!
I loved listening to the newest podcast on Kansas (#675). You lined quite a bit. I spent a number of weekends there this spring.
I do know you may’t point out the whole lot however thought I’d add a pair issues.

You point out path ruts. Fort Larned has a indifferent a part of the par which as Santa Fe path ruts. There’s additionally ruts and museum at Alcove Springs and Marysville space. Additionally, need to point out Fort Riley. Nonetheless an lively navy base which home the US Cavalry Musuem. The unique stables are nonetheless there. Custer’s Home on the bottom can also be a historic web site.
One NPS web site not talked about is Nicodemus NHS, north of Hays. The one remaining western city established by African People through the Reconstruction Interval.

Simply wished to achieve out and say thanks for the podcast on Kansas. I’m truly from Missouri, so I suppose I actually ought to have said- “you have to be reaching the underside of the barrel when you’re overlaying Kansas” (just a bit MO-Kan humor there, LOL). Anyway, I do admire that you just’re overlaying one in every of our space fly-over states. So, thanks!
I ought to embrace a pair notes though- it is best to point out that the Truman Library is quickly closed for main renovations. I imagine they stated it will be closed for a yr. Fort Rock Badlands is a extremely neat place however it’s on open, however personal, land and if even barely damp would require 4 wheel drive. Additionally, there are beautiful fields of sunflowers within the state this time of yr (though barely tempered this yr attributable to heavy rains). There are different issues to see and do after all, however for the sake of brevity I’ll shut for now.
