I know, I know. I was curious as to what is the best way driving to Phoenix. Many say west out of Itchiita and drop down thru Liberal hwy 400 / 54? OR Thru Oklahoma City and across. I know what the interstate is like, but what about 54 across Kansas. Anybody offer any suggestions cause after all, I trust my KU brothers!!!!!!!!!!!! Didn't know where to post.

I don't know how to get to Phoenix IB, but since you're on here why don't you tell us what to expect from the Clones this year.

I would take US 54 west out of Wichita until I hit I 40 at Tucumcari. Go West to Flagstaff, South on I 17 to Phoenix. I've driven that route several times. Road are good and it's shorter than through OKC. I just now saw your post. I may be too late to help you.

Sorry, I forget to tell him to dribble a basketball all the way or at least part of the time. Oh yes, and says, "Rock Chalk KU" every mile as he passes through Kansas. Is that close enough to basketball to make you happy?

Jayhawk1952--ah, the memories! I drove that stretch of US 54 through Kansas hundreds of times and that's no exaggeration.

For vast stretches, you could doze off at the wheel, wake up and still be on the road.

And the tourist attractions: World's Largest Hand Dug Well in Greensburg (still there), Dalton Gang Hideout in Meade, World's Longest Railroad Expansion Bridge (over the Cimarron River outside Plains), Dorothy's house in Liberal.

And the events--Miss Kansas pageant in Pratt, the Little World's Fair in Kismet and the famed International Pancake Race in Liberal.

Those Were The Days! Thanks for the memories Jayhawk152..

Awe, you blew it 2004, you failed to mention anything about basketball and Old Phogy is going to be upset with you. I suggest that a slight detour be added to iowaboy's itinerary and that as he comes down I 35 he slip over to Lawrence on state 10 and see Allen Fieldhouse and all that is there to view. That would really make a capstone for his trip. He could then take the KS Turnpike to Wichita or drop down south on US 59 back to I 35. Glad I could give you some pleasant memories.

iowaboy has been to Lawrence before. His stench hasn't quite faded away.

I would avoid Wichita. A real armpit.

Happy Thanksgiving Jayhawk1952. Please start posting more often.

You got that right about Iowee boy. He thinks Lawrence is too big and fast paced for his taste. After living in Atlanta or 8 yrs there is nothing fast paced to compare in Kansas.
