    In our post, "Midwestern Road Trip Destinations," we covered great destinations to drive to in the Midwest. We listed places as far away as South Dakota and Michigan, which got us thinking. While those places are beautiful and fun, maybe you don't want to spend a whole day on the road getting to your destination, and a whole day coming back. Maybe you want to get away but only have a weekend to spare. We decided to put together a list of some great places to see just a few hours away right here in Kansas and Missouri.

    Imagine your worst nightmare has come true: you're all ready for work, you get in your car, put the keys in the ignition and nothing happens. You try turning the keys again, expecting your car to start. Still nothing. You realize your car won't start. If you're car savvy, it's a double whammy because you know that pretty much anything under the hood can cause your car to not start.

    If your car vibrates when you're driving, watch out. It can be a sign that you need to check the tires, or the rims for any bending, or the brakes. If your car continues to shake, the vibration could damage the tires and suspension.

    Did you know that according to the website, DoSomething.org, “Five seconds is the minimal amount of attention that a driver who texts takes away from the road. If traveling at 55 mph, this equals driving the length of a football field without looking at the road.” Diverting your attention for the road for even a moment causes seriously harm to you, your passengers, other drivers and their occupants as well as pedestrians and animals.
