Sweets, Treats, and Surprises In Chanute, Kansas

Most everyone enjoys a vacation, but only has the opportunity to take a handful at most per year. In between these longer trips, it is fun to have a few day trip options in your back pocket.

Chanute, Kansas is a good example of this, as it rests just a couple hours south of the Kansas City metro.

Filling Our Tanks At Playmakers Sports Bar & Grill

Rest assured that all opinions are our own. [...]

Untold Adventure Awaits At The Martin and Osa Johnson Safari Museum

We both enjoy watching nature programs and seeing animals in their native environments. Like most people, the only time we see many of these creatures in real life is at a zoo. A visit to Chanute, Kansas opened our eyes to the Martin & Osa Johnson Safari Museum. It's fun to consider the experience of an African safari, but couldn't imagine being some of the first to ever do this. You can imagine our surprise when we found out that this was actually accomplished by a young couple from southeast Kansas. What we found was not just a collection of artifacts and photos, but the [...]
