Chapter 4: Everything's Up-to-Date in Kansas City

Monday, July 11, 2016

9:00pm. Overland Park, Kansas

The past 48 hours in the KC metro area have been tremendous!

Our hosts have been nothing short of amazing: not only did they open up their home to an itinerant family of hyperactive young men, but they treated us to some amazing meals (be sure to check out Cinzetti's and KC Joe's next time you're in the area) and acted as tour guides around town.

They even set up a session at an escape room, from which we broke out with just two minutes to spare!

Thank goodness we escaped or my kids would
have learned some inappropriate new words.

And remember how concerned I was about sleeping conditions and bathroom access? Well, the beds and bathrooms here are even better than at home!

In short, there's some talk about canceling the rest of this trip and just hanging out here for two weeks.

But that wouldn't make for much of an online diary, so I guess we'll stick with the plan: up at 6:00 am, and by 7:00 be on the road towards our first night of camping in the Rocky Mountains.
