Day 21: Today we traveled through the other half of Kansas. We saw many wind turbines, hay rolls, oil wells, and lots of straight road. Too cold for golf, so we stopped in Hays and visited Historic Fort Hays. We are now seventeen miles short of the Colorado border.

Day 20: We planned to drive some today and then stop and play golf, but needed to revise those plans this morning when we found all sorts of weather warnings about flooding and tornados, etc. So we went to Branston, MO and spent some time looking around and shopping, then back to Springfield, where we visited the Fantastic Caverns. Enjoyable, dry, and the caves have quite a history, including the housing of a SpeakEasy during prohibition.
