2016 Summer Trip – Day 1

Saturday, May 28th – Morning comes early and I run around the house like a madman trying to get the final pieces packed up. There is no reason for this – I should have had everything organized days ago. Departed Lansing, KS at ~10:00am. Easy driving on I-70 to Topeka. Take I-335 to Wichita. After Wichita, it is a US highway. We pass a grain silo about every 10 miles. Pass through Oklahoma, then into Texas. Quite a bit of dead bug build up on the station wagon. We arrive at the Corral RV Park in Dalhart, TX around 7pm. I am smoked. I keep the trailer hitched to facilitate an early get away. No water hook. Just sleep.
