We have a MasterBait shop here also.

The gas thing is just stupid and a great way to rip off custoimers unless I am missing something.

You should post over in the KS & NE hometown. Ive heard of the MasterBait. Lol, I can imagine
what customers ask if he sells

Yeah, we KSians dont really know what real rush hour gridlock traffic is like. Stereotypes are
KS drivers dont know where they're going and drive to slow and to defensive. KC is a bistate
city do the rivalries in collage sport abound.

Never thought Id settle down here, but you know, its pretty comfortable.....

Grew up in KC area, and I've been in LA rush-hour traffic.

LA was less stressful, possibly because the people there know that if they make some stupid move on the highway (such as occupying the left lane and not moving over) they may get shot.

I'd rather be on the 105 in LA at 5pm than the south stretch of 435, 470, or 35 in KC at the same time.

Never been in LA rush hour, but +1 on being some place else.

In Kansas City you can have a major metro area without 24 hour gridlock.

You can in fact get a Hertz "Neverlost" system lost...In fact very lost. Especially when the exit you want is closed for construction. I wish I could d/l the track I made in that car. It would be funny as hell.

Yes, it is flat. It just has some hills. The overall landscape is flat as the lowest part of Kansas is like 400feet or some shit like that and Mt. Sunflower is like 4500ft. One of the lowest sloping states in the Nation.


Where did you find all 5 types of gas in one pump? The most around where I live is 4.
1. Unleaded 87
2. Super 89
3. Premium 91
4. Diesel

And just about any lake you go to, will sell bait and liquor.

When I even HEAR the name "Kansas" I start to go into facial tics and my stress level rises to heightened proportions. I drove through Kansas.... flat...... boring...... Kansas.

I think I passed the same barn 46 times. They all look the same. I made my friend drive all the way through as I slept... I REFUSE to drive the 70 through THAT place again. As far as I am concerned... ALL spiders should go to Kansas and STAY there.

Boring..... and Flat.... Flat and Boring!!!

Did I say it was fucking BORING???

Other than that its P-A-R-A-D-I-S-E!

That's the problem. You drove through. I-70 or I-35? I-70 is the real bore. They didn't pass it through towns at all, they just plowed on through back fields for the most part.

I'm not saying the majority of rural Kansas is a terribly fun place to be, but there are plenty of places in Kansas that are far more beautiful than any of the Highway Tourist fields you see on the way through.

That was Wisconsin kids teasing us. WTF? The Wizard of Oz was shot on a Hollywood set. Go make fun of California.

Elevation dictates what octane levels are available. Higher altitudes require less octane because of lower atmospheric pressure reduces maximum cylinder pressure.

Since most of KS is well within Clean Air Act pollutant levels, the need for oxygenates is minimal and this allows better freedom in the marketing. The central location means many different refineries can sell their products there and because of the surrounding regional requirements, many different blends can be had, it just depends on price and availability.

In reality, only two grades come from the refinery though the pipelines, 87 and 91 octane. At the terminal where the tankers are filled, gasoline is blended to the desired octane and many times, additional components are added to boost detergent, octane or oxygenates.

That is how you get octanes over 91 and in between. 89 octane is a 50/50 blend of 87 and 91. 93 is 91 pipeline grade with octane boost, usually MTBE.

I run into ToTo the 3rd from time to time. He's taken to hanging out at the Pink Garter smoking Cigundos and sippin rye. Just goes on and one about his babe Judy. Sad, but he's seems ok with his scene. Buys round for the house every night. Someone told him IBM for his earnings.

Yup Nebraska and Kansas 2 states I bypass if I'd ever have to drive out that way again. To me Kansas was the worst though. 100's of miles and looking like you went nowhere.

The good thing about driving through Kansas is that, if your front-end is aligned properly, you can set cruise control and take a nap. You won't miss a thing...

You can pay more taxes than you ever thought possible if you live in Kans-ass but work in Misery.

Them pheasants they got up there sure are tasty, though. Do some serious pheasant hunting (not the farm-raised guided bullshit) and you'll be glad KS and NE are as flat as they are. Wheat stubble gets hard to walk through after about 10 miles.

1GR, I'm disturbed that you got a rental with a navigation system, for God's sake. Why?

They have Yahoo maps and Google Maps, and stores that sell maps!

If my family ever wants to rent a Ford, they go to Budget, where it's cheaper!
