We leave non-descriptive Arkansas this morning and head North towards Missouri. The first gas station we stop at in Missouri is selling T-shirts that reads, "keep calm and carry guns", "you keep your advice we'll keep our guns", and last but not least "hey vegetarians, my food poops on your food". Well I have news for you Mr. I-drive-a-giant-pick-up-truck-to-overcompensate-for-other-smaller-objects, the ketchup you put on your burger is made out of tomatoes, so technically your food poops on your food.
We stopped for lunch in Kansas City, Missouri. A small portion of Kansas City is located in Kansas, that may be why it's called Kansas City because the best part about it is Kansas. Our friend Andrew Brick who is from St. Louis, Missouri messages us during lunch to inform us that we are on the wrong side of the state, we should be in St. Louis. Unfortunately that is 8 hours out of our way so we will have to leave that for another time.
As soon as we leave Missouri, and enter Iowa, the energy is immediately more positive. Iowa's tag line is "Fields of Opportunities", which we find amusing. We dip West and head to Omaha, Nebraska where we're spending the night. Omaha is pretty legit, complete with three breweries and a Whole Foods. The guy checking me out at Whole Foods suggests the Zorinsky Lake as an evening activity, and we take a really pretty five mile hike around the lake.
