Fort Scott

Wow.
Fort Scott, Kansas knew we were coming... and they threw us a party!!!
The people have been incredible to us here, in fact this is the only town that actually seemed to know that we were coming through at all. The best thing I saw here was a bank sign, like one of those giant red LED marquee type signs that kept flashing "WELCOME SCOOTER CANNONBALL RUN!!" after stuff like, "TRY E-BANKING" and stuff like that, with the prerequisite time and temp.

We also visited a cool hotel and some guys were playing bluegrass. The people are really nice here. Thanks, Fort Scott Kansas!
When I get the link to the newspaper article about our visit (the reporter came down to the hotel, and to the party) I will post it.

Tomoorow: St. Louis!!!
it is a short one, only 280 miles!!! YEAH! Bring it on Missouri!
;)

Am I the only person who misread "For Scott"?
