On the Road Again
I left school today and headed straight for Wichita Kansas, where I am judging at the Kansas State Gymnastics Meet this weekend.
Right off the bat, between Pittsburg and Parsons there is road construction. I sat for 45 minutes as the west-bound lane of traffic waited its turn to travel on the one-lane road. Grrrr. I was stuck behind a tour bus and had absolutely no view.
The rest of the trip, thankfully, was event free. I got bored so I called Eli (he's in Dallas this weekend doing Army things), my brother Paul (nobody home), and my Aunt Betty. That helped kill another 45 minutes.
Interesting things I noticed on my drive:
:lots of scorched earth from the wild fires the last couple of weeks.
:lots of cows (moo).
:lots of field green with newly-sprouted winter wheat.
:a windmill farm
:Fredonia, Kansas has a very weird-looking hill with a flagpole on top of it
:a sculpture garden with metal buffalos
I made it to Wichita State with 15 mins to spare. An easy drive to start my Spring Break!
