1. Dude, I don't understand how you can do that, or why.
You have an event at 7 p.m. in KCMO. When does the event get done? 8 or 8:30? Then it is at least a five hour drive to OKC, isn't it? Flying does not seem much better either. Probably take over an hour to get to KCI and then on a plane ...

So you are getting to OKC by 1:30 a.m. or later. Okay, you can sleep late before the next event, but that's still a long, late night drive.

Then an event that goes until 8:30 p.m. in OKC followed by an event the next morning in Dallas at 10 a.m. Again, it is not a one hour drive from OKC to Dallas. My road atlas shows 210 miles which is at least three hours. If this was me, I know I would be lucky to get to bed by 2 and then have to get up at 9 to make a 10 a.m. event.

It just looks like a rough schedule to me, unless somebody else is driving while you sleep.

2. KC is about 6 hours...
and Dallas is 2.5-3, depending on where in the city one is heading and at what time of day. Wrong time of day can lead to delays. The flight from KC to OKC is about 45 minutes, and to Dallas, about 35-40.
