On the road again! This was a beautiful and relaxing drive along I-70. The Kansas landscape was one of rolling hills and more cattle ranches than corn and bean farms. It reminded me of Tennessee, which was greener.
So here we are in a KOA campground in Salina, Kansas. We’ve opted to purchase a KOA membership which will pay for itself by the time we get home. Earlier in the trip KOA campgrounds gave us a AAA discount which equaled theirs or a military discount which is a little less. However, going into Nevada on our way home we know we will rely on KOAs.
When traveling across country, campground membership helps. Passport America (PA) certainly more than paid for itself. We have found that some KOAs were very expensive along the east coast, but then most campgrounds were high. That’s where Passport America came in handy with their 50% discount. Some campgrounds had strict rules on the use of PA and others didn’t.
One more tip before I end this post. If you’re traveling on the east coast, purchase a Fast Pass before you leave home. It will save you time and money.
Tomorrow, we head to Oakley, Kansas, so we’ll be seeing more rolling hills. We’re almost to Denver and cortisone shots. Maybe I’ll get new glasses while I’m there. The spare pair I’m using influences how I see color when editing photos. If I take them off, I can’t tell what’s in focus!
Always on the road again, or so it seems!
