Rock Chalk Jayhawk, LV, and DCA-ROC guy!! Although I try not to say this too much, come football season
One of the most outstanding things about arriving at MCI (or at least used to be a fw years ago) was that if you had spent any time in a city like New York, and then flew into Kansas City, you knew that you were out in the prairies. There was no mistaking that! Open fields, a quiet airport, wide roads with a car here or a car there, or maybe none at all! Compare that to the drive to EWR or LGA from Manhattan, or if you are really unlucky, from any detroit suburb to DTW!!
