Peaceful Driving Video Set to Peaceful Music

I think I completely neglected to mention this here, but on June 23 I set off on a month-long roadtrip to go visit some archives in Arizona, Japanese American internment camp sites in CO, AZ, and UT, and to attend the Japanese American Citizens League National Convention--which some of you will remember as "that hellish week Kalliel spent in Las Vegas last summer and kept complaining about." GUESS WHAT, IT WAS IN LAS VEGAS AGAIN. AND I COMPLAINED ABOUT IT AGAIN. XD But I also got to visit septembers_coda and brightly_lit on my way home, which deserve its own post because they're so freaking awesome, and about 999 other things I should document for myself and posterity.

But going in reverse-chronological order, on my second-to-last day of driving I visited the Promised Land, AKA Lebanon, KS. If you're not from the USA (or not from Kansas, frankly) and you were curious what Lebanon was like, here's the video version of Google street view! XD



It was Sunday when I drove through, so everything was closed. (Though I did stop to take a pic of the gas station, because it's where steeplechasers's spn_summergen fic from last year took place: Charmer & Gentle.) And I guess by everything I think I mean the small market on main street, the gas station, and the curio shop.

The nearest BIG cities to Lebanon, as far as I could tell (and at least if you're driving East-West; idk about North-South, but TBH I don't think you hit anything big south of Lebanon until Salina, and north would be, what.. .Sioux Falls?), are probably Denver, CO, Lincoln, NB, and Kansas City, KS/MO. And Lawrence, which is west of KC, and houses KU. After that, idk... Colby? Which has more than one motel and houses either Western Kansas U or Northern Kansas U, I don't remember.

Anyway, a forewarning: THIS IS NOT AN ACTION-PACKED VIDEO. But it's quite peaceful. And come on, it's Lebanon, KS. I'd watch this all year!
