The sprawling plains and straight roads of Kansas mark the halfway point in Craig's epic race across America.

After the Arizona desert and mountains of Utah and Colorado, Kansas poses another challenge altogether... staying focused and motivated on a seemingly endless straight road through the plains.

While not needing to worry so much about altitude, the weather could throw another challenge Craig's way...

... June is a high-risk month for tornadoes in Kansas, with nearly 20 recorded on average every June.

Even without tornadoes, wind will play a role during Craig's traverse across Kansas. The average wind speed in southwestern Kansas is consistently around 12 knots, resulting in Dodge City being crowned the Windiest Small Town in the World by Mother Nature Network.
