Now for the work. I try not to watch as Herb installs it and the roof mount. The DVD player has to come out for access to drill holes in my motor home for running the proper wires. His skill proves very valuable and much to my relief, all panels are returned to their places and wires are hidden. No ugly holes! Tonight we will enjoy the fruits of his labor as we watch the local news.

The scenery today is very pleasant, going from Metropolitan to rural farmland. The Fall colors of golds and yellows add to the enjoyment.
A fun place to visit is the Welcome Center at the northern border of Kansas, especially if they find out you are from Texas. The attendant tells us our destination of Salina KS is pronounced Sa-lie-na, unlike the county name pronounced Sa-lee-na.
He says it used to be pronounced like the county, but laughingly blames 'you Texas people' that were on the cattle trail, who tried to shorten the name to one syllable.
Only a short distance to go down the hills of Kansas. We'll be there in sixteen minutes, but can relax, as we don't have to grab life jackets and prepare to put out the fenders.
