Stopped in Topeca starving and was excited to see a Perkin's! The staff were friendly and efficient. Good stop right off the interstate for a quick cheap meal.
We drove through on I-70 after midnight and the hundreds of red synchronized flashing lights for miles was amazing! When we Googled and found out they were wind turbines, we were amazed! There were a few we could see from the road.....so cool! I'm sure it's even more amazing during the day.
Stopped at 1:30am too tired to drive anymore. With a gas station and a Sonic for the morning on this exit, we figured it was a good break. Rooms weren't bad for $53. There was even a sheriff patrolling the lot in between the motel and truck stop....is that good or bad?
