Kansas' own version of Mapquest

mapMy husband and I were taking a little Memorial Day jaunt to a part of the state we’d never been to yesterday, and we discovered something really cool about Kansas.

If you’re lost, all you have to do is pull out a map. You don’t even have to look at it.

While I was pumping gas at a station less than a mile from our house, Joe pulled out a map to check where we were going. The guy at the next pump immediately asked if we were lost.

Then, once on the road, we encountered a roadblock and had no clue what to do. We stopped, pulled out a map and barely had opened it when a nice couple pulled up and asked if we needed help.

I’ve occasionally lamented that there aren’t more places close to Wichita to visit, but I do appreciate the people I’ve met along the way.
