Sometimes a fun adventure is just short a detour away. That’s what The WON’s founder, Barbara Baird, and I found as we drove across Kansas on I-70 to attend the Kansas Governor’s Ringneck Classic. As we racked up the miles, we talked about the usual, kids, hunting, shooting and solving the world’s problems. That’s when we saw a sign for the World’s Largest Czech Egg. We were due for a stop to stretch the legs, and so we both thought, “why not?” Thus, we embarked on our first mini-adventure.
In this instant gratification world, it seems we make every attempt to execute our travels with quick efficiency. I admit, I am guilty! Looking back on these memories though, I want to change that. The next time you make a road trip, consider doing the same and maximize your journey. Take a minute to take a selfie with a Van Gogh or kiss a buffalo. Make memories of your mini adventures that will have your smiling for years to come.
