cross-country: Oct. 4, 2004

St. Louis, MO - Emporia, KA
55906 - 56347

Got going on Route 50. Slow going through some meandering country roads. Hooked up with 70 after Jefferson City. Impressive capitol building right in the Missouri River. 70W has got to be the ugliest stretch of highway: too many RV, porn, and fireworks signs. Stopped in Kansas City to visit the Jazz and Negro League museums, but unfortunately both closed on Mondays. Went to lunch at a barbecue place and then Joe was off to the airport. Followed 50/35 to Emporia, KA and my destination: a strange strip mall complex on a hill in the middle of nowhere. Weird, like some sort of ancient Celtic hill fort...
