Been wanting to make a cross-country trip for a long time now, after reading all the exciting threads in this forum. I had the perfect excuse to go to California to attend a military reunion of 15th MAS Loadmasters and Flight Engineers. I wanted to avoid the interstate if it all possible so I started my journey a hundred miles east of Nashville and made my way through southern Kentucky, Missouri and Kansas. I have a app on my phone called ultimate public campgrounds and it was a great resource. This was my campsite in Kansas, right on a small fishing lake. The only issue was it was only about a hundred yards from an active railroad crossing, but for free I couldn't complain. I was so tired I didn't even hear any trains go by during the night. This next pic was in far Western Kansas. While passing this abandoned facility in Western Kansas all I could think about was those mad Max movies. It would be a perfect place to film some kind of dystopian movie. Temperatures were running close to a hundred degrees when I stopped to take this picture on the border of Kansas and Colorado. I couldn't wait until I got to the mountains of Colorado where the temperature would cool down.
