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?
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.
