Kansas

The first thing that you see when you leave Colorado and get into Kansas is a very posh visitors information centre. It is packed with lots of helpful staff, giving away free coffee, and encouraging you to spend the rest of your life exploring everything that Kansas has to offer. And why do they make all this effort, you ask yourself? Well, it’s because there really isn’t that much to do in Kansas! The top attractions in the entire state are:
See the 5-legged cow
See the 8,000 pound prairie dog in ‘prairie dog town’
Visit the Wizard of Oz museum
Visit the ‘Agriculture Hall of Fame’
Get sent to Leavenworth prison
Go to Dodge City “where the Old West comes to life every day”
Get the heck into Dodge
Relive the legend in Dodge
… and another thousand cowboy-related activities. Although I have to admit that ‘Kicking up your heels with Miss Kitty & her can-can dancers’ might have been fun for a while! Unfortunately for Dodge City, it is such a long was away from everything else, so unless you’re on your way to Oklahoma (unlikely!) you’re not likely to go there.

So pretty much all people do in Kansas is drive across it to get to the other side. There are entertainments provided as you’re driving along, such as regular typhoon warnings insisting that everyone gets off the roads and into shelter, and there is also something called ‘gun talk radio’. Pretty similar to sports talk radio, but instead of callers discussing whether they should draft a player onto their fantasy team they are discussing what size bullet they should use if they want to make sure of killing a large deer on the forest but not completely blowing it up so they can put the head on the wall above their children’s bed. I told you there wasn’t much to do in Kansas!
