We Added One More State

Russell, Kansas              High 95 Low 66

Sorry no pictures again. We drove from Valentine, Nebraska, which is the top of Nebraska, to Russell Kansas. This is the first time we have been in Kansas with the fiver. It was a long day driving, but we do have a reason, which I will explain later this week.

We went on a lot of secondary roads and saw some sights that we never could from the Interstate. We both feel that if you’ve seen one freeway, you’ve seen them all. At least going on secondary roads, we got to see lots of old buildings in the towns on the way.

Through northern Kansas about the only thing growing was oil wells. There were a lot of them along Highway 183.

The roads were mostly smooth with only a few stretches that were a little rough. We did get stopped for some construction, but only had a 10 minute delay.

We are staying at the Fossil Creek RV Park with Passport America. It doesn’t have much in the way of amenities, but at least we have 50 amp power and are able to run our air conditioners. The grass here looks to be almost burned up. We are in almost the middle of the state about a mile from I 70.

Tomorrow will be another extended day, but we are staying 2 nights there and then will get to relax some.

We only went through one town that had a Quilt store, but couldn’t find it, so sorry Sandi, we had to pass that one.

Hopefully we get some pictures tomorrow.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. So did you guys go through withdrawal when you couldn't find the store? I much prefer the backroads also.

  2. I agree, I hate the interstates. I also don't drive the rig at 75 mph so the back roads are perfect for us.
