We headed home to
to celebrate the 4th of July with family. It's an 8/hour drive across I-70 and then you drop south on I-35 to Kansas . One of the state slogans is "Land of Ahhs" Once again a reference to 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz'. "Ahhs" is pronounced "Oz" . Wichita
For me when you cross the border into
Kansas from Colorado it used to be Ahh F*(K! or Ahh Sh&t because the speed limit would drop from 75 MPH in Colorado to 70 MPH in . When you still have 350+ miles to go and traveling across western KS that is flat and hot, you want to move as fast as you can to get where you want to be. Kansas
Well low and behold guess what? The state of
finally got with the program and increased the speed limit to 75 MPH. Boy this sure made the trip a little quicker and was pleasant surprise to see the new sign. For a minute I still thought we were in Kansas . Well thank you Colorado you definitely made my day! Kansas
Here is a link on a news story talking about the increase.
