Heading to Amarillo

How about another Kooky’s Road Trip?

This time, a short one, to Amarillo, TX.

Apparently, I’m giving a keynote speech at the Panhandle Press Association convention. My guess is that all the other speakers Roger Estlack invited were busy.

Cigars for this trip courtesy of my brother Christopher S Viers.

We'll take a different set of wheels this time. How about a 1983 Mazda RX-7? She may not be the prettiest thing on the road, but she runs great!

First stop! Picking up a passenger to Wichita. Mark Sanderson is tagging along for a few hours.

Cigars, Bavarian bier, and great conversation with Dieter, the owner of the Cafe Bahnhof in Wynoka, Oklahoma is on the horizon. Also a short stop in Canadian to see my old friend Laurie Ezzell Brown.

I'm just a guy who finds the world an interesting place and likes to capture certain moments with a camera. They aren't for sale, or anything. I just like them. Well, usually. I've taken a lot of photos I don't like, as well.

Driving Through Prescott, KS

I stopped along the back roads I was taking home in a little ghost of a town named Prescott. I let Biggie stretch her legs while I had a cigar and enjoyed the quiet of the neglected baseball Diamond on the edge of town. As we sat there, I watched a young father giving his toddler a ride on his motorcycle. Around the block he went...then again....

He Was Cleaning the Windows of the Restaurant

As we pull into the lot in front of the big sign, I realize just how right Kurtis was...this is fantastic!
