Are we still in Kansas?

Port Townsend, today. I was surprised to receive a few snickers from my Canadian cohorts in response to my earlier post on Parson's Kansas. See "What are we doing in Parson's Kansas?"

In my article, I had related the frustration of how long it took to drive across such a neutral landscape!

While there is irrefutable scientific evidence to support the notion that Kansas is actually flatter than your average International House Of Pancake's pastry, I would remind my friends in Canada, that the miles and miles of featureless scenery does not end abruptly at the 49th parallel!

Consider Saskatchewan.

Surely Kansas is level, but North Dakota is just plain flat. Here is a link I came across that you, Robert, may wish to include.
As an aside, I absolutely cannot get the name/URL choice to work, therefore I choose anonymous so that my comment would be accepted.

Thanks for sending the clip along. Running that plow is the purest form of "having faith!"

Indeed, North Dakota is another mind blower for those of us from the PNW. My former wife was from ND, and I remember when we visited there, I started to get out of the van.

She shrieked at me "What are you doing?" I told her I was going to get out and stretch my legs.

She said, "At 75 miles per hour, your legs will get stretched!"

Nothing had changed for so long, I thought we were parked!
