    Rolf, enjoyed your top ten today. We live in Shawnee KS not far from Flint Hills and we drove the new national scenic byway last weekend. Curious what your recommended experience in Iowa was, alluded to in number 10? I am an Iowa native.

    Best, Warren Sparks

    Everyone hating on the Yankees. **sigh** You are correct though, hanging with the bleacher creatures is singular experience. I saw my beloved Yankess win the World Series in ’99 and even got to curse out (and hock a loogie in the general vicinity of) John Rocker. A better baseball time cannot be had.

    When asked the question about what is my favorite place in the US, my response is that the greatest place is where my RV happens to be parked. There are certainly favorites in my travels and there are other places that are not worth a return trip. If required to choose, my favorite places are western state secondary roads with wide open spaces and/or mountains.
