Kansas Turnpike traffic was CRAZY on Monday.  We got stuck in it.  It took us over one hour to drive 18 miles from Emporia to the Cattle Pens exit southbound on the turnpike.  I decided to go on to the cattle pens bridge and turned around.  That is legal.  I promise.  The toll ended up being 25-cents.  We went back to Emporia and then proceeded to take Highway 50 from Emporia to Newton and then down to Wichita.   

I hope that you made it home safely after your eclipse viewing.  I am also glad that the Kansas Turnpike stayed busy and made some money on Monday.
