Not to steal from the thread (enjoying the pics and trip) - but I had a totally different experience at Dodge City last month. Lost my electrics and landed there enroute to KAEJ, the line guy was great, the owner of the FBO and the mechanics were super friendly (they've built several RVs, and Mr Crotts has a flying Rocket); they helped me with some parts from their parts bin and put the -10 in a hangar for over a week while I drove the rest of the way to CO.
