Kansas 2021


View Kansas March 2021 on Lumpy4Square's travel map.

Flights were super cheap in March of 2021, and after being cooped up for a year, I needed to get out. I picked Kansas because I hadn't yet been there and needed to scratch that state off my list, and again, flights were cheap. I took my 17 year old son with me, this would be his first flight. We went from BNA to STL to ICT. The flights were uneventful, and we pick up our rental car. I had reserved a Jeep Wrangler, but got a Dodge Charger instead.

We drove 30 minutes to the Airbnb in Hutchinson, KS. The Airbnb and garage was located inside of an airplane hanger (I don't know what else to call it), We spent that night listening to the wind howl, thankfully we had a fabulous place to keep the car safe. It is so windy in Kansas!

The next day we went to Strataca Salt Mine. We went on the Salt Mine Express, The Dark Ride, and The Safari Shuttle. We spent about 3 hours 650ft underground, had fun and we learned a lot about salt mining in the late 1800-early 1900s.

The next day, we left ICT and flew into DEN, then from DEN to BNA. My son did great on his first flight, and since that trip we have taken many more flights together.

I so want to see the Salt Mine! Should hit up the Cosmosphere next time! The eastern part of the state is *less* windy!
Big Brutus in SEK is really cool. Big old Steamshovel used for strip mining back in the day. It's HUGE. And you can go inside it!
