I've ran across HWY 50 across Kansas several tine in the last 4 years, it's good road and has passing lanes so you can get around the big rigs. Hutchinson KS, has two great attraction, The salt mine and the Cosmosphere, well worth going to see.

Having lived in Vacavillle, Ca for some 25 years while I was still working, I can tell you that I have traveled US 50 several times between Sacramento and Southern Illinos. This road has some very high elevation areas in the western US. At Lake Tahoe it rises up to over 7,000ft. with several sharp curves. US 50 gets closed off at different times in this area due to snow, landslides from rain and falling trees. Across Nevada it is quite an experience to drive. As stated above it is "The Loneliest Road in America" at that point and some mountain passes reaching upwards of 5,000 ft. In Colorado it gets very high also. Once you reach Kansas the road levels out and slowly becomes mostly flat across middle America. It is a "roll of the dice" as to weather at any time of the year. Just be prepared, travel safe and most of all enjoy your trip. It is a beautiful drive out west!
