Located in Kansas along U.S. Highway 24 its's a monstrous flat bottomed ball with a roof over the top! It is over 15,000 miles of sisal twine, and I understand that number is growing!.

We have been traveling extensively for the past year and set out to see the country via our RV. Seeing the worlds biggest ball of twine is significant. It depicts our road trip life and is something I've always wanted to see!

70 miles or so. it really all going to depends which way you go. really no quick and easy way to get there direct. But it will be a pretty drive if you go north from Wilson,KS. also along that route is the town of Lucas. it's the grassroots art capital of KS. a very odd town.
