Kansas. I don't think that there is more than a 5 foot change of elevation across the entire state.

Kansas born and raised, here! Despite your assumption, no I can't see my dog run away for five miles!

Right! It's only three miles, and that's because of the tree.

Funny!

Believe it or not Kansas has some nice scenery IMO. I'll take my Kansas cornfield views over any big city/new York views any day!

You just need new glasses :-) Seriously, I grew up in central Missouri and any time we'd drive far enough west we could always tell when we crossed into Kansas because it changed from hills to flat.

Kansas isn't so bad. You have to appreciate the wide open prairie. I enjoy a road trip across the great plains once and a while.

I have traveled through western OK a few times. From Texahoma to Liberal, KS. There is not much there.

I've mainly been to Ft. Riley and there are hills all over the place.

Haven't yet found a state that doesn't have some nice bits. Even a small state like RI is a reasonably big chunk of real estate.

That said, I will say that if Oklahoma has a nice part, I didn't come across it when I drove through.

I live in Houston. We travel a lot by SUV - seems like we always have to go through Oklahoma on our way to wherever.

From my house to Oklahoma is about a 5 hour drive.

Texas has horrible rest stops - I always stop at the first rest stop across the TX - OK border and take a dump.

It has become a family tradition.

Living in the Midwest, I've been to alot of places around here. Omaha Nebraska probably cuts the cake for me, a whole lot of boring IMO.

I don't live there or particularly like it, but there are clearly rolling hills as you head West on 70.

Compare the lowest and highest points here: http://www.50states.com/kansas.htm#.URfcrKVbl0g

I imagine the researcher received a pretty good .gov grant for doing that.

Wisconsin. Too much Packers paraphernalia for me. They plaster that logo on absolutely everything.

Living near KC, don't really have that problem with the chiefs logo, see it every one in a while, but i think most are afraid to to display it....

Maryland, especially Baltimore. Polluted, corrupt, socialist, and the women are ugly. No wonder Poe was boning his cousin.
