Driving across Indiana and Missouri with kayaks on your roof is like sailing in the desert – the hot wind is intense and the kayaks turn into sails that try to pull you off the road.
That made me begin to wonder why anyone lives in Indiana or Missouri. The pioneers must have just gotten tired and said, “That’s it. We give up. We’re just going to have to live here. Who needs California? We can have brutal winters, scorching summers, and tornados. And lousy football teams.”
But, maybe to entertain bored people desperate to get through their states, they have some great stuff along the way. Like:
