cross-country: Oct. 5, 2004

Emporia, KA - Garden City, KA
56347 - 56633

Some beautiful, rolling countryside at the start. Beatiful sunny day, with Coltrane on the player. Things get progressively flatter and flatter. Some sightlines are just flat, harvested fields as far as the horizon with no trees. Bryson's "A Short History of Nearly Everything" on CD is a gem. Towards Dodge City there are more and more cattle ranches and feedlots. Dodge City was an ugly little town but had a very nice visitor center from where I was able to send some postcards. An old Italian couple was there (why?). I was able to pick them out by the way they were dressed, before they revealed that they were indeed from Italy to the women who gave them a pin to mark their home on a map. Drove onto Garden City. Watched the Sox win 7-3 in the hotel...
