Day 32 Road Trip- June 20, 2008

What an absolutely beautiful day we had today- We couldn’t have asked for better riding weather. We did have kind of a sobering moment today- we have been lucky- and hadn’t seen any accidents so far on the trip. But today, while driving on US Highway 60 through Missouri, there was a small SUV that had struck a deer. It happened just moments before we came upon it. The deer of course didn’t make it- the SUV’s front window was smashed out right in front of the driver, and along the drivers side of the vehicle was smashed up a bit as well. The passengers all appeared to be ok- shaken up a bit, but ok (I think the driver hurt his hand). We have been very vigilant as we drive down the roads, watching for animals. We’ve seen several deer and antelope standing along the roadside- but have been very fortunate in our travels. May all the little “road gremlins” stay clear!

Can you believe you actually have to pay to drive through parts of Kansas? Seems to me, they should pay us to come see the state!!!

I got kind of a special treat today- I love Taco Johns. This is the first time we have eaten at a fast food restaurant since we left, but when I saw that there was a Taco Johns in Lawrence, KS I just knew we would have to eat some “junk food”! We don’t have TJ in South Carolina, and I didn’t have one in SLC either- the only time I ever had the opportunity to eat it is when I would be visiting back home in Nebraska… yea for me… I got to eat Taco Johns.

Entering Missouri… bye bye Kansas!

By the end of our day (476 miles closer to home) we did get rained on a little. Not enough to stop and put on our rain suits- but enough to help make us feel thankful for the mostly dry weather we have experienced on this trip. It looks like we have rainy weather over the weekend during the last 573 miles of the trip!
