I trust, Frederick, that a trip detour through Iowa again is out of the question?

Have a great trip!

[b]I think Colorado and Kansas are feeling left out on your trailer's map. They might start developing a complex...

I vote dip down into Colorado, take the toll loop around Denver till you get to the interstate then left into Kansas.
I think so too. I like your idea.

I think on your way home you need to get off the 40 at Holbrook, AZ and drop down into Clay Springs.

I know a nice RV Park there.. but they tell me the manager is a pain

Fred

I think you may still have my number?
Call me.

I have just spotted this thread and I have made this journey several times.

I go through the part of Kansas you are looking at each summer on the way to the Colorado Mountains where we have a small cabin.
I have some definate recomendations/warnings about it.

Also I will expect to at least get enough "Face Time" with you guys to meet in person and shake hands if not "Driveway Time" to which you are certainly welcome.

Sounds like an adventure for sure!

Ed

I'm anxious to hear your feedback on the route you take. I am debating whether to go back to San Diego (from Indy) by way of Kansas, Colorado, N.Mex then AZ or to go Missouri, OK, TX, NM, AZ (like your return trip). I took the Kansas route in 2007 to get here. I prefer KS to Nebraska, in my experience. Western KS and Eastern CO were indistinguishable, but didn't last as long as Nebraska. I am wondering if the Texas midlands will be an even longer time to go through flat, treeless, dry landscape with only an occasional oil derrick or feedlot to add to the ambience.

I had friends the bicycled across the states (Oregon to D.C.) in the 80s.

They called Nebraska the "Dead Animal by the side of the road" state.

I have driven from [b]San Diego-to-Phoenix-to-Flagstaff-to-Albuquerque-to-Amarillo-to-OK City-to-Tulsa-to-Springfield-to-St. Louis SO many times! I have to warn you that the "Texas Midlands" last from Albuquerque to the Oklahoma State Line. Makes me wish I had Auto-Pilot, not just Cruise-Control.

I can't offer any route suggestions but I just wanted to wish you a safe, enjoyable trip! I would love to take a long trip with our Scamp but work limits our travel time. I hope you'll share your adventures with us along the way!
