    Oregon Trail Vieux Crossing

    September 12 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 90 °F

    We think the credit card debacle may be a blessing in disguise. On our way back from the Oz Museum, we came across this intriguing sign.

    Heck, it was only 20 minutes out of our way (40 total) to take a gander at the original site of the Vieux Crossing. Really, it wasn’t much to look at, but we were there where countless brave and determined souls had crossed the country against incredible odds for a chance at a better life. The Vieux Crossing wasn’t much even at the time, only a toll bridge over a river, but thousands chose to pay the toll rather than ford the river.

    We were reminded this is HOW we want to travel, not racing from place to place.

    Lunch at The Friendship House, Wanego KS

    September 12 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 84 °F

    A lovely bakery and cafe in an old house. It was crowded to the gills with families and extended families, most of whom seemed to us to be locals. We packed away a delicious breakfast and enjoyed the show.Read more

    The OZ Museum, Wamego, KS

    September 12 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 88 °F

    A fantastic collection of memorabilia and facts, starting with the books and ending with The Wiz. Inspiration, nostalgia and kitsch in equal measure. Interesting note: the Oz books were originally stories the author, Mr Baum, told his children. He stored his notes in file cabinets labeled A-N and O-Z. Hence the Land of OZ.Read more

    You know, now that I think of it, the wizard was conspicuously missing from the displays. Hmmmm….
