Day 30 - Hutchinson

There are many cool things to do in Hutchinson. We could have seen the salt mines or the Cosmoshpere. Instead tony spent the morning at the Toyota dealer getting the transmission checked out while Anne and Michelle started some laundry and relaxed. Our Van was losing it's passing gear and we had transmission overheat code come up yesterday. Those are two very bad things to have happen when heading into the mountains. Turns out the transmission had been overfilled and needed a flush. Once that was taken care of we headed out to explore Hutchinson. We found a great cafe in an old firehouse for lunch and afterwards looked around the shops in downtown Hutchinson.

The plant supplies all the milk for Dillon's grocery stores as well as some other products like juice and flavored teas.

The games were called off due to the storm and the resulting lakes left behind on the sports fields and parking lots. We headed back to the house and spent the evening talking and playing "One Night Ultimate Werewolf" until everyone was too tired to play anymore.
