One of the reasons we drove to Boulder was to remind ourselves of the vastness of this great country. Miles and miles of little more than telephone line. Maybe a house. Maybe a gas station. Dirt road intersecting the highway.
Even in the most remote areas, someone has a house. With electricity and a phone.
The fact ribbons of highway run multiple directions through every state with phone and electrical line spun even tighter is a remarkable feat. Something we take for granted far too often.

Kansas at 80 mph was a long day. At 10mph? That’s plenty of time to think.
