Kansas Byways: US-36

The last few weeks have been completely off the wall, but for part of it my sister and I drove across the country (she is moving from Boston to Modesto). We passed through Kansas in one shot, and about a third of the way through my sister asked, "What's a good stopping point for Jax?" (Her dog.)

I said we were about 100 miles out from Lebanon, and the geographic center of the contiguous United States, and did she want to stop there?

She asked why I knew Kansas so well. And I said, "well, I've been here before."

Once in person (but many


many times with Sam and Dean).

* Fun fact, I was born and raised in California but the only thing I actually know about Modesto is that it's the town Dean says he and Sam are from when they're pretending to be Troy Squire's concerned uncles in 1x01.
