We are definitely in Kansas.

We are definitely in Kansas.

“There are moments that I’ve had some real brilliance, you know. But I think they are moments. And sometimes, in a career, moments are enough. I never felt I played the great part. I never felt that I directed the great movie. And I can’t say that it’s anybody’s fault but my own.”
-Dennis Hopper

WELCOME TO KANSAS: THE SUNFLOWER STATE

My buddy and I took turns driving across the state of KANSAS end to end, from the west side to the east. If you like randomly placed billboards, pretty cloud formations and falling asleep at the wheel, quickly drop your life and move to this super flat state. I promise that, if anything, you’ll have many stories to tell … or just ONE, LONG, BORING STORY.

According to my buddy Patrick: “If you’ve seen any of Kansas, you’ve seen all of Kansas.”

I hadn’t seen Patrick in about 5 years. He moved from Los Angeles to Dallas to be with the love of his life and continue pursuing a career in comedy. It’s been great catching up with a great friend and when you do drop your life and move to Kansas, make sure to take someone with you who can make you laugh out loud. We had a ball cracking jokes, sharing where we were in our lives and what we want to do in the future.

We both agreed that we both just wanted to get out of the flat countryside in the immediate future.

One thing I did notice about The Sunflower State were randomly placed billboards along the freeway for no reason at all. I mean, are these billboards going to change the world somehow? And who paid for them?

Two of my favorites are listed below.

“JESUS IS REAL”

“Adoption
not
Abortion”

Really? Just keep the McDonald’s billboards up please.

Despite the boring drive, Kansas did have some beautiful foliage along the 70 freeway. Check out my gallery below.

Oh one last thing. This picture. Patrick said that ‘Tonganoxie’ translates to: “Buffalo Dick Kansas”.
Hahahaha!!
