Driving drowsy

Waiting over three hours to get new tires was the easy part. Driving from Overland Park to Smith Center turned out to be very, very difficult.

I was fine all the way to Junction City, but between Junction City and Abilene, I was starting to wear down. I had enough left in the tank to get to Salina and stop, but that’s where the real trouble began.

I was totally out of it on US 81, starting from Minneapolis all the way to US 36 at Belleville. I was having a dickens of a time staying awake. I’m lucky I’m still alive to write this. I finally made it safely to the Dairy Queen in Belleville for a brief nap.

It wasn’t nearly as bad on US 36 west from Belleville to Smith Center, but I wished there was a way to pull over and just get in a few more winks. The game will help me build enough energy for the drive home.

It’s two hours before kickoff at Smith Center. Oakley has yet to arrive. It should be an interesting night.
