Off We Go

This car and I are the same age. It has 53,900 original miles on it. I think I have more miles on me than she has!

The mechanic has his doubts that I can make it from Richland, Washington to Kansas City. I believe in her.

I’ll head south into Oregon then east to Twin Fall, ID. From there I’ll head south to Vegas and on to Phoenix.

After a short stop there I’ll head north to Route 66 and east again, winding my way home to Kansas City.

With a pound of jerky by my side, cigars, plenty of water, and a full tank of gas…off we go!

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.

Every Moment I Get Along the Way

There was a wreck last night on I-84, just outside Nampa, ID. It was one of those bad ones where you can see flashing lights up ahead, and plenty of them.

Heading to Amarillo

How about another Kooky’s Road Trip? This time, a short one, to Amarillo, TX.

Jonathan Visits Kookyville, KS, population 1

A week ago Tuesday started out simply enough...we woke up early and hit the road north to Marceline, MO to tour the Walsworth Publishing plant, then lunch at Tall Paul's in Bucklin, MO with Meghan Viers Jolliffe, Joe Cupp, and Beverly Cupp. From there, Jonathan and I would wander rural Missouri so he could get a glimpse of life out here.
