I was a travelling fool this weekend. I was in Wisconsin on Saturday looking at a potential new car. I applied for a loan with my credit union when I got back so if it goes through, I'll be picking up a 96 emerald green Jetta next weekend. Unfortunatley with my current credit I can't be overly positive the loan will be approved so today I applied for a loan with the same rates and term through my insurance carrier. Who knows, they could both be turned down or there is an off chance both of them would come through in whcih case I'd have to turn one of them down. Oh well. Moral of this story young people is don't get yourself so deeply in debt that at age 40 you have trouble getting a $5000 loan for a car.

Sunday I went up to Iowa and met with my Sister Starhawk for the first time in a couple years. Now I can add another "world's largest" thing to my collection. Last night I ate at The World's Largest Truck Stop. I can add that to the World's Largest Prairie Dog and the World's Largest Frying Pan and the World's Largest Hand Dug Well. Oh and the World's Largest Ball of Twine.

Anyway, Starhawk and I had an awesome time catching up and talking about shamanism. We probably scared a few Christians away around us as I noticed a few pointed looks in our direction. Their loss. Our energy is so compatible that we tend to keep feeding off each other and we both end up getting stoned from the meeting. That happened last night. I was actually vibrating with the energy which is a good thing. Too bad we ddin't have anyone around that needed healing. They'd have gotten one hell of a jolt of energy from both of us. She promised next summer she'd come down to the farm and spend some time. I can only hope.

Found out this morning that I'll be getting sent to Virginia some time in the next month. It would be nice if they told me where in Virginia but they didn't. I have to go check out a video studio and negotiate with the owner to see if we can use him/it for a video CD project we are going to be working on. Hopefully I'll have a little time there to go visit some LJ friends and some good friends from high school as well. we shall see.

I seem to have forgotten... Are not the twine and the hand-dug well both in Kansas?

Yes. The twine is in Cawker City and the Well is in Greensburg. The largest Prairie dog is there too in Oakley. Kansas may have no trees and the most boring interstate highway system but they are chock full of Americana.

I've rarely taken the superslab in Kansas. Not big on it anywhere else, for that matter. But I've found the scenery through Kansas - both superslab and via two-lane highways - to be fairly interesting, even if they do have too many trees.

I would agree. I took US 36 all the way across a few years back, which is why I went through Oakley and then the backroads down throug hthe eastern plains of Colorado where I stopped in several ghost towns. The post rock country of Kansas is very pretty and very historic as well. I wouldn't mind travelling the whole Santa Fe Trail route sometime as well. I usually go across MO on 36 to Cameron then down I-35 to south of KC and then hit the US highways down to NM. That is a pretty drive as well. But I-70 all the way across is torture. Much better to do that drive at night. Then at least you have you imagination to make the scenery better.

Let me know if you come anywhere near Roanoke!

Apparently the place is actually in WV but I'm hoping I fly over a weekend so I have some time to drive over and see you and other friends.
