    Wichita Warnings and Dangers

    WE HAD NEVER HAD A PROBLEM getting through Wichita, either on I-35 or a western bypass route (I-235?). not until our May 2009 trip. Shortly before entering Wichita from the south, no less than three serious accidents took place on the interstate, and worst of all, two of them were fatality accidents. The picture shows part of the situation on...

  • Beware The Geography Of Nowhere

    There is a trap in all the states of America that it is best to try to avoid. It will require that you make an effort to look for places that have character. In large cities and increasingly in small towns along the interstate you will find the faceless and boring. You could wake up in the parking lot of these fake places and be unable to determine...

  • Be watchful for gang activity in...

    I have lived in Kansas my whole life. It is a wonderful place to live, and I would highly encourage anyone who wanted to to visit and stay. :) It is beautiful. I do have a word of advice for you, though. When driving through Atchison, Ks. becareful of gang activity. Kansas is not a dangerous place on average....this is just a word for the wise. ...

  • Home of a seriel killer

    I'm sure you have all heard the story by now. BTK, the strangler killer has finally been caught, charged & safely in jail. Thank Goodness! But as I look back over the last 30 years of his rein in terror I think how close I have come into contact with him. Very errie! He started his killings in the 70's and his killing spree lasted a full ten years....

  • Watch out for Gangs!

    For the most part Wichita is fairly safe. You do have to watch for gang activity though. They are prominant in the malls & you can identify them by their "colors". For the most part , thanks to the Wichita Police Department, gang activity shouldn't be a problem in the Mall, but be careful of those shopping bags you take to the car so you can resume...

  • General Warning about Travel Through...

    I was in Kansas at a hotel. They have a thing called HARD WATER, which is water that basically doesn't wash off anything. So it was three days before I noticed that I wasn't getting a good shower. I was very surprised why my skin was acting up, so I went ot the store and bought everything that can cleanse my face. After a shower, When I used...

  • It takes a while to get through...

    If you're just driving from one end to the other, don't underestimate the time it will take. It takes almost an entire day to get through here. And the roads are very flat and straight, so it's easy to get bored. So stay awake!!!

  • Caution: Wind Currents

    Real travelers will purposely get off of the interstate highways to get a far more interesting view of the state. If you do so in much of the state - especially the west half - you will see these signs along the highway as you approach grain elevators such as those pictured. On a windy day, the gusts whipping around these structures can blow your...

    Check your gas. Kansas is not very populated and in some regions it´s quite hard to find a gas station. Take some extra fuel in your car.

    Beware of ice storms. Ice storms can make roads become slippery and dangerous to drive on. Tree limbs and power lines can become so heavy under the coatings of ice that they break. I'll add a few pictures to a travelogue from a recent ice storm.
