Mileposts Home

31 July 2002

My last postcard, sent from Kansas, arrived today, a week after it was sent. The post card for Missouri, sent from the same box, arrived two days earlier. I’d meant to post mileage markers, because I thought that was interesting. I didn’t start keeping them, but every 100 miles along the way, I’d note what town I was in. So, here’s the list: 22 July, leave East Lansing, dinner in Bloomington, drive to east of St. Louis, MO. 23 July, start east of St. Louis, MO 1000 Topeka, KS 1100 Selina, KS 1200 Hays, KS 1300 Mingo, KS 1400 Stratton, CO 1500 Strasburg, CO 24 July 1600 Georgetown, CO 1700 Glenwood Springs, CO 1800 Grand Junction, CO 1900 Green River UT (excellent little restaurant there) 2000 Salina, UT 2100 Provo, UT 2200 West end of Salt Lake 25 July 2300 Halfway between Wendover, UT and Wells, NV 2400 East Carlin, NV 2500 Winnemucca, NV 2600 US 95 Junction, NV 2700 Truckee, CA 2800 Sacramento, CA 2900 San Mateo, CA Total miles: 2920 from East Lansing.
