Tuesday, September 3 – We are leaving our good friends today. We had soooooo much fun. Thank you, Barry and Jan, for the wonderful dinners. Barry used his smoker and made us hamburgers and chicken…delicious.


We had a fire last night and talked way into the night.

We left the farm in Tipton, IN, this morning and hit I-70 heading West. We slipped around St. Louis on the North by-pass and continued on to Boonville, Missouri, where we parked at the Walmart.
Free parking but of course we purchased groceries making it an expensive one-night stop. Very uneventful night.

Wednesday, September 4 – Today we drove through corn country (Kansas) stopping in Russell, KS, at the Triple “J” RV Park. It was so windy, Marsha forgot to take any pictures of our campsite. It was a decent park for an overnight stop. PPA…$17.50 FHU.

If you have never driven through Kansas, here is what you are missing.

Bet now y'all will reroute and add Kansas to your travel plans.

Well, we continue westward ho.....and have to conquer the Rockies in Colorado to reach our first extended stop in Moab, UT, where we will hike around Arches National Park and Capitol Reef National Park.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day!
