Just one other fact I have learned on this trip is that the myth of Kansas being flat is bullshit!!! I noticed that my fuel mileage was the worst in Kansas and I had to push the jeep harder than I had expected.... So even though Kansas looks flat driving, here are the elevations... Kansas City, Kansas is 740 ft above sea level. Burlington Colorado , the first little town into Colorado after Kansas, is 4170 ft above sea level!! I felt I had my foot on the floor board through Kansas. Now I know why!!!
