Thank you, Mary Anne!
On the way to Iowa, sans trailer, we're going through OK to see family. But on the way home, we're going through Denver and through this tiny town called Bailey, up in the mountains to see friends. Then we go home through Breckenridge, Copper Mtn, Vail, Grand Junction and then down Hwy128 in Utah to Moab and through Monument Valley in AZ. It's a seriously beautiful drive. We did it last summer and hoped to camp someday along Hwy 128. It has the Colorado River meandering along it. Or vice versa.
I'm putting together my AAA trip plan and would love to see SOMETHING in Kansas. I try to plan our road trips around Trader Joe's but not so many in the central states.
Thanks so much for your input. I really appreciate it.
And thanks to everyone for such a warm welcome!!
