    It looks like it's a good one, indeed.
    And I'm sure it's a blast when over on the edge of the rubber!
    I'm sorry I have no idea where it could be.

    Okay, 460Jet wanted Interstate 70.... but it's not Kansas. I gave you the road, tell me the place on the road... Colorful name..... That's all the hints you get.

    This one is in Kansas. But I bet you could tell that by how flat it is, that's what impressed me.

    (Sorry about any formatting this screws up.)

    Nice pano Darryl. Lemme take a wild-azzed guess and say - Hwy 160... west of Johnson City? Love the vast open spaces. Your pic reminds me of the final scene in the Tom Hanks movie Cast Away.

    No, but you're not so very far away. OTOH, probably the whole western part of the state looks like that. I understand that, statistically, Kansas is actually flatter than a pancake. Much flatter.

    That's not an elevation change, that's a speed bump.
