Where's Nate?

living large in the four-oh-eight. wicked large.


at the crossroads.

My friend Mike has asked us to visit him this summer during his internship with a major e-tailer. He might have a hard time pulling people away from the coasts to the sleepy hamlet of Coffeyville, Kansas.

Mike employs the bulleted list, a standard device that makes it possible for any short-attention-spanned MBA to read along:

1) You will LITERALLY be at the crossroads of America.

2) Dalton is home to a plaster replica of the "largest hailstone on record," 17.5 inches in circumference, 1.67 pounds. It fell on Coffeyville on September 3, 1970. You will get to see what this puppy looks like in real life.

3) This is the guy you see for real estate if you want to rent a cabin for during your stay. The average home price is about $37,000. The town will also give you free land to put a double-wide on if you like.

4) According to the community profile there are a lot of tourist and recreation activities for you including "looking at historic murals."

Good luck, Mike. At least the golf is cheap. Wherever it is.
