Knob Noster State Park, Missouri to Spring Lake RV Resort (Halstead, Kansas)


Spring Lake RV Camping (Halstead, Kansas)

September 29, 2020


Another day of stumbling into a campground around 5 pm. I was doing my usual approach of hoping I'd see a campground sign on the highway and BOOM! Nice privately-owned place - $13 for the night for your standard no water, no electric site.


Started off just east of both Kansas City's. So of course today's song is





Made my every-other-day stop at Wally Mart to get ice, red grapes and Oscar Meyer oven roasted turkey. And some Gatorade Zero - it won't kill me, will it?


Gas just keeps getting cheaper.


Jack and KC on one sign? A must photo op.



I think they have taken this street naming convention a bit far. I'm in the boondocks.


Detoured off of Route 50 to see if I could find Paris Township, Kansas.


And I got there in a hurry!



Some true backroads.



No road signs for this Paris. So the town no longer exists but the township does. But what is a township?


Full disclosure - I could not find this sign and I looked for an hour. I even asked someone. This photo is from the internet.

Blue sky, flat roads, agriculture.


I believe the yellow outline is meant to represent a sunflower?



Just confirming that there were fields.



Route 50 is a goldmine for special days!



There is a joke here somewhere. What road to I take? Z Road.



It is hard to capture just how flat the western part of Kansas is.




The soil is black.




I know I am from the east coast but Canada doesn't border Kansas, right?


More flatness.


In what city is the cosmosphere? Newton, of course!



Home for the night. Lots of bugs. ☹️. Not going to listen to the debate tonight. I have better things to do. Like listen to crickets.
