Once we were south of Denver, we hopped on I-70 East into Kansas. At some point we stopped for dinner at a truck stop that featured a Ponderosa restaurant...didn't have the greatest experience there! We were seated in the back across from a family with 2 screaming kids, crying, throwing food, etc. Dawn and Tyler wanted meals, while I got the serve yourself buffet. We waited forever for drinks, and I was on my second plate before the guy came back to take their order! I was finished before they even got their food. If all three of us had ordered meals, we would have left before they came. All the while, we were entertained by the screaming kids across from us. One of them was eating a bowl of Ketchup!! The long wait put us behind schedule, and we couldn't wait to get out of there and back on the road again!
The rest of the evening was spent driving as far as we could go and putting some ground behind us.
