Day 1 adventures

Our Path

You’ve got to love technology. On the road with this new Sprint Mobile WiFi hotspot and while on our way to CO our friend Angel says: “you are definitely going to see the Garden of Eden in Lucas, Kansas, right? It’s a trip” and we said, “well, why the hell not.” We actually were in for a big surprise!! Not only was the Garden of Eden really cool but the Worlds Largest Collection of the Worlds Smallest Versions of the Worlds Largest Things Traveling Roadside Attraction and Museum by artist Erika Nelson, was even better! Thanks to Erika, we will now be adding other random Worlds Largest Stops on our adventure.

The Largest Ball of Twine*

Just like the Barry Bonds #73 home run ball has an asterisk so too should the largest ball of twine in Cawker, KS. As it turns out, according to Wiki there are actually a few cities that claim the largest ball of twine and Cawker can more specifically claim the largest ball of twine built by a community. I say this is nearly as impressive as the largest ball of twine built by one person in Darwin, Minnesota, big ups to Francis A. Johnson. Nevertheless we will drive a little out of our way to say we’ve seen it and surely will never recognize the wiki claim that Branson, Missouri believes they too have the largest ball of twine. Good try Missouri, we know you only have one thing that is bigger than KS… idiots!

Thanks for following… we are on our way. more posts this week to include renovation stages and the newly improved Stanley pics! 😉
