Kansas or bust

This month we made a trip to Kansas to meet our Xbox live friends Josh and Matt.  We left around 1am and went through the rolling plains of Missouri in complete darkness.  It was pretty eerie – at times it felt like we were the only ones on earth.  We stumbled upon civilization most unexpectedly in what I believe was Mexico, Missouri.  On one side of the highway was a walmart and on the other a trailer park.  We stopped to use the bathroom and were both amused (by the fact that beer and pizza were located right next to each other) and a little spooked (by the classic Missourian twin janitors located in the front and back of the store).

Once we got to Overland Park we spent a few days visiting and seeing the sights.  John went to a huge haunted house which he loved.  We discovered Cici’s pizza and went for a nice drive to admire the beautiful architecture.  We were pretty sad to leave, actually.  It was a long, boring drive – we drove in to a storm and nearly ran out of gas at the end!  Overall it was a great trip!
