By 8:00 this morning we were loaded, checked-out, and on the road. We hope to get as far as Oklahoma City.
As we crossed over into Kansas, we stopped at the Kansas Welcome Center. We used the restroom and talked to the attendant about places to stop in Kansas. One thing I liked about traveling in Kansas was that they listed the mile markers for all the upcoming rest areas, so you could plan your stops.
We didn’t stop for lunch until 4:00. Fortunately, that worked since the restaurant where we wanted to eat didn’t open until 4:00. We stopped in Hays, KS and at Gella’s Diner. Fortunately, the restaurant is in the LB Brewery. Beer and burgers were in order for lunch. I had the Liberty Stout with my lunch. Then I had a Oatmeal Stout for my dessert. They were both delicious.
It was after 10:00 when we finally stopped for the night in Tulsa, OK. It was a long drive, but we are in a good position to drive to Hot Springs, AR tomorrow.
