It will be a hectic two days, our road trip with the tractor club folks.
Tuesday, 7 A.M. Everybody will be loaded and the bus heads out.
10:00 A.M. We stop for brunch at Emporia, Kansas. Then on to the Agco location at Hesston, Kansas, for a two-hour walking tour of their plants, of which there are several: Machine, fabrication, assembly: baler, windrower, combines, and planters. Yes, I will be taking my cane-chair AND my hydrocodone. It's a two-hour, two-mile tour.
We'll check in at our hotel after the tour.
5:00 P.M. Board the bus and travel to Yoder, Kansas for dinner. Our very efficient club secretary gives us prices for meals so we know what to expect.
Wednesday morning we'll eat a full breakfast at the motel.
9:10 A.M. We will board the bus and head for the Salt Mine tour. We get to ride through that on a train, so that will be nice.
When we get back on the bus, our very efficient secretary (yes, Joyce IS that wonderful!) will be passing out sack lunches which she and a friend put together, since she's afraid we wouldn't make the deadline for our next activity if we stop somewhere to eat: We'll have a sandwich, chips, a drink and a dessert. I know this because we had a sack lunch on the last tour we participated in. We'll eat this lunch at the Lunar Outpost at the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center.
1:30 P.M. One-hour guided walking tour of the space center, then we have about 20 minutes to browse the gift shop.
3 P.M. We enter the theater at the Cosmosphere for a movie.
After the movie we will load the bus, heading toward home. We'll stop in Emporia for a buffet meal and then come on home.
Hey, that is a lot of activity for a bus full of mostly senior citizens!
