I'm now 1,205 miles into my journey and have crossed from Missouri into Oklahoma. I'm now directly south of Kansas City and I passed just barely south of the Kansas state line on the journey. I came from Springfield, MO and am on my way toward Tulsa, OK.
It's a very small town of only 1,025 people. The picture shows what the town looked like on July 11, 1911. My guess is that it's not much more industrial these days.
I'll continue on Route 44 into Tulsa and then around Oklahoma City before I jump onto Route 40 for the next 1,200 miles. Texas will be the next state followed by New Mexico. Away I go!
