Day Three Page One on America’s Main Street – We’re Not in Kansas Anymore


Kansas, the State Route 66 Forgot

Last Updated: July 12, 2017. Left Joplin, MO about 6:10 AM after a night at Pontiac Palace.

Driving west on MO66, this signage snuck up on me:

Should I take it or not? Taken! And it’s a good thing, Kansas is just a hop, skip & jump away.

We’re in Kansas Now, Dorothy!

The road narrows and winds toward Galena.

It’s only 7:48 on Day Three – Monday, June 28, 2016 and already some great memories.

Let’s see what the rest of the day brings.
