Easy To Locate, Even on National Weather Maps

Most people picture straight east-west and north-south lines when they think of Kansas, and when they think of driving across Interstate 70 through Kansas.


And that’s what makes us so easy to locate on a map. When the fine folks at the Weather Channel stand before their national radar maps that show I-70, I can find us.

So can you. I’ll show you.

Here’s Kansas, and I-70 is clearly visible. See the stretch of I-70 that runs from northwest to southeast? That’s the stretch of I-70 between Oakley and Colby, and that’s where we’re located. It’s easy to spot. Go ahead and use the minus button to zoom out. Even as you begin to see more states on the map, you can still spot that little section of I-70 that angles so sharply.

Now, to hone in more closely for those who are either looking for driving directions or are studying weather radar during storm warnings, our property is marked here with the “A” bubble, and you can zoom in or slide the map around to gain a sense of where we’re located vs where your radar shows the current storms.

If you’re looking for us and your GPS puts you anywhere but I-70 and US-83, or your directions tell you to take any exit off of I-70 other than Exit #70, please don’t follow it!

We’re on US Highway 83, just south of I-70, on the SW corner. We have a large green-roofed building. Turn on to our driveway and drive straight up to the metal green roof.
