It’s day four of our cross-continental journey and we’re on the home stretch; we can feel it. There is a pressure now that was not present before. No one wants to stop at rest areas. No one needs to stretch for a few minutes. It is all go go go, let’s get this thing wrapped up once and for all.
Fortunately, the path we are on today is conducive to this sort of urgency, as today we traverse Kansas. No turning, no change of highway, none of that, just one straight dash across the Great Plains to our destination.
