Hello from Kansas City
« on: July 22, 2018, 05:38:58 PM »

Hi everyone! I've been a roadgeek for as long as I can remember, though I didn't know the term until much later in life.  I stumbled across this board a while back and finally decided to join!

I'm originally from Upstate South Carolina, but moved to Kansas City, MO about six years ago.  So I'm very familiar with SC highways, especially in the Greenville area, and I'm still getting to know the roads in Missouri and Kansas outside of the KC Metro.  I love picking a highway, getting in the car, and seeing where it leads.

So anyway, hello to all of you, and see you around the board!

That's the spirit! Sounds like you'll fit right in.

I've been back a few times, and it's amazing how much the area has changed just in the few years since I moved.

This is where my road interest began too. Welcome to the forum from Michigan!

Welcome from Texas! I was just in your area late last year on my way to/from Minnesota and was delighted to learn my TxTag works with the Kansas toll system.

Welcome from Oregon! Come out west sometime as no 2 highways are even close to the same (except in the Willamette Valley  :bigass:)

Welcome from Dalton, Georgia!  :wave:

I, too, highly enjoy finding out where highways lead and what they look like.  :nod:

I'll see you around on the forum.  :wave:

Thanks! My girlfriend and I are planning on making our next big road trip to the PNW.  Seattle and Portland are two places we've always wanted to go.

My dad used to do this with local backroads. I think that might've helped spark my interest in roads too.

Welcome from Orlando. 

Need to get to finish clinching I-435 between I-35 and I-70 (west end).  Obviously the Johnson Gateway project is completed.  Last there in 16.

Hoping to get to Hutchinson ( a couple of hours west of you) to see the Kansas State Fair next September as I missed it twice do to family and money issues.  My mom passed away whom she was why I could not attend last year and this year I had other problems. Hope next Summer I can get there.

I visited Hutch a couple of years ago to see the Cosmosphere.  Apollo 13 is one of my favorite movies and seeing the real Odyssey capsule was really cool.
