Christmas Road Trip - Day 2

Saturday - Oklahoma through Kansas and Nebraska and barely into Iowa. The picture is in Kansas but it is pretty describes most of today’s miles. The highlight, at least for me was lunch. The 5 Guys burger place had a long line. We went to a ramen shop. It tasted wonderful, especially after the apparent lack of decent Asian food in Texas. 

The fog has also been around for most of the drive. At least we’ve been able to cover a fair amount of ground. Traffic has been light. 

We arrived in Sioux City, IA, a bit after 6pm. I hadn’t been in Iowa since the late 60s when our family vacation was a road trip to MN from CA. And I don’t remember stopping anywhere in the state. 

Dinner was a mushroom burger at Culver’s complete with cheese curds!


  1. If the highlight of the day is somewhat ok food you know you are in the flat region of rural America... I hope your destination will be less bleak and include reunion with family and friends. Merry Christmas and drive safely. Cheers, SonjaM

    1. Flat midwestern states. The weather really does make it feel bleak and lacking color. The views out the windshield are almost like a black and white picture.

      Merry Christmas!
