On DaRoad to AIBF–31 days

So we left the Derr Family farm round 7:14 am.  As I slowly drove out of the driveway, I saw Dwight and we both made our last goodbyes by waving at each other.

Some people wonder, why we would stay in one place so long. Well, it is the close friendships we have established, with each one of you.

Our travels will take us to NE 6 and then onto US - 81 heading south to Kansas. Once in Kansas we will eventually pickup I-70 and head west, where we will exit at #225 taking Ks. Hwy 156. Once on 156 we will be going southwest and thru Great Bend, Ks. You’ll remember GB, as we stopped and spent a few days enjoying that town on our way east earlier this summer.

Along the way, we saw many small town, some with parks, some with museums. We are thinking, we have to come back and do these small towns. The small parks are large enough to park our Beast, yet still enough room to walk around and sit a day, while seeking out new things and new friends.

When we pulled into a fuel station on the south side of a town called Ellsworth, Ks. While filling up, I spied a breakfast burrito – YUMM . So, after fill up, Susan paid, got coffee and a breakfast burrito. All four of us shared it. It was hot (not spicy hot), lots of eggs, meat all the stuff bad for you.

We switched drivers 3 times, I started and ended, while Susan did the middle. Sorry, no photos along the road, but one thing, as we rode along we keep discussing the different crops we saw along the highway. Thanks Dwight, now we can’t get the crops out of our mind - think we are becoming farm helpers????
Gee, is there any photo I can leave you with?  Let’s see:
