Today we left Norman, Oklahoma and traveled about 510 miles to Goodland, Kansas where we set down for the night. A couple of reasons for choosing Goodland were good friends, Al Pietryka and Pam Varney Murray, and it was a reasonable start to a northward trek into Montana and Wyoming where there is a possibility of weather in the next couple days.
The Super 8 in Goodland is a great place to stay. it is inexpensive and very clean. If you just need a place to sleep you can't ask for more. There are limited places to eat in Goodland on good days and at 8:20 pm on a Sunday night we felt fortunate to find a Wendy's available.
On the way to Goodland we passed through an enormous wind farm that paralleled 1-70 for quite a few miles. As you can see from this first picture there are a lot of the wind turbines and this was on both sides of the highway.
