That is much more enjoyable to us. We'd rather take our sweet time and see and do various things that interests us as we go. We certainly don't follow any kind of a tight schedule.

We almost took that route heading home last week but decided to stick to 70. Winds were good that day but considering the part of Colorado we live in we are kind of used to wind.

If in Dodge City, take the little tour bus. Lots of very intersting things to see. Well worth it.

Ha!!! ...ditto on no worries about the grades!!! ...and the "traffic" in Wichita is nothing to fret over either.

400/54 etc is more heavily traveled, and I would expect it would be more likely to be 4 lane more than US 160 is. I have lived on/near both roads in both Kansas and Colorado. When I was a kid my dad made US54 sound like a horrible death trap, but it doesn't seem that bad to me after I have been on other highways all over the country!! There are several small towns on US160 that have city parks with hookups, but I don't have the info on them.

Thanks for all the good Kansas tips, I still need a campground or a place to park in or near Willow Springs, MO which is on Hwy 60?

I could make something work on Hwy 160 in West Plains, MO just as easy if you know of a place there?

I am OK now.
I found a USFS campground called North Fork near Blue Springs, MO.
We can stop there for a night.

I traveled last month from New Orlenas to CO. I took I 35 north and then I 70 west. I still don't know why Dorothy & Toto wanted to go back to Kansas.

You might as well of flown over at night.

If you didn't bother to take the time and get off of I35 or I70, then I can somewhat agree with you. Trust me there is quite a bit more to see and do if you get back away from the turnpike and interstate.
Granted we don't have many mountains to climb, or sandy beaches to stroll along and enjoy, or huge metropolitan cities to explore, but there are lots of other things to see and do.

Dorothy and Toto must have not just stayed on the turnpike .............

You might not have sandy beaches, BUT YOU DID AT ONE TIME. My Uncle lives in La Crosse and he has dug up shark teeth in his back yard. La Crosse is also the stone fence post capital and they also have a great barbed wire museum. Theres also a lot to see in and around Dodge City. And it is true, If you look in any direction you are able to see the back of your head.

Please know that my post was said in humor. You are absoultly right about not getting off the interstate. Unfortunately I was on my way to hook up with my daughter and family in Boulder Co and did not have chance to explore Kansas. I will say with all sincerity that I really did find the vast plains wondeful to look at. I thought about the pioneers that first arrived and the effort they made to settle the land. It also reinforced what a beautiful and great country America is. When I have the chance to travel to Kansas again, it will be with knowledge of that state and the areas to visit.
