2. I did better than that.
I left in 1959 and have not been back except for occasional visits too.
Of course being so old that I remember when dirt was clean probably helped with leaving sooner.

10. We left in...
...1990, returned for one year, remembered why we left to begin with and came back to New Hampshire. I lived most of my life there until my mid 40s and I'm now very late 60s. We won't return by choice.

7. There was plenty of regressives in KS back in the 60's
I went to KU (Lawrence) a liberal pimple on the plains back in the 60's - early 70's. The politics of the state were plenty right-wing way back then - didn't need to be called TeeBuggers or anything. KU had its campus occupied by the National Guard and a couple (I believe) of students were gunned down.
However, whenever I met a plain-old Kansan they were almost invariably friendly and helpful. It was just, then and now, the politicians and religious zealots who thought they could make their $$s by being hateful.
Hang in there, Tena!
