Anyway . . . we're in Wichita, safe and sound.
The drive was looooong, but uneventful. We made it out of town Friday afternoon to shave a few hours off, and hit the road again before the crack of dawn on Saturday. This was I-40 before we stopped for breakfast:

Then, when I wasn't driving and listening to a John Grisham (I even had Charles interested in this one -- win!), I had this view:
Then, finally, this was out the rear window as we drove across Kansas:
|Driving at sunrise and sunset. (Not) awesome.|
But, like I say, we made it safe and sound. Yesterday, we were able to sleep late (Clare still seems to be on MST), go to a lunchtime Mass, and do a little exploring (and grocery shopping). Overall, we've liked the little bit of Wichita we've seen (and the house, which belongs to some friends, is wonderful!). Today, Charles is on Day 1 of his rotation, and we are awfully excited about it. So far, so good.
