The Wednesday Post

Greetings from Kansas!
The Avatar has reached the Sunflower State

The Michael5000 running Avatar reached little Haigler, Nebraska ("The Cornerstone of Nebraska) last Sunday, turned right onto a state highway, and less than a mile later crossed over into the state of Kansas.

Kansas seems like a long ways from Oregon, so while my stacking up of running miles would not be particularly impressive to most serious long-distance athletes, this landmark still makes me feel like a highly accomplished jogger.

Having the Avatar in Kansas will also give me a chance to pay virtual visits to actual Kansas pals, and re-revisit my old haunts from the 1990s, which I spent mostly in Kansas.

The first Kansas port of call will be St. Francis: Whether you are planning a sight-seeing or hunting trip or considering a move, St. Francis is 'As Good As It Gets.'

And from there it will be another 400 or 500 miles before I get to the places I used to live.

Kansas, like a lot of U.S. states, is really very big.

On an unrelated note, I want to wish you a very happy feast day of St. Jeanne of Valois.

Carry on my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more!

Also - Ad astra per aspera!

Has the avatar considered the benefits of a run up Mount Sunflower?
