Where are we today ?
We both got a good sleep last night but the time change got us! I was up at 3:30 this morning instead of 4:30, And Suzie at 5:30 instead of 6:30. But we made good use of our time. Computing, emails, coffees,walkabouts and by 7:40am we ready to hit the road. Not a long travel day compared to what we have been doing only 187 miles.
|Today only 187 miles|
The day started off with drizzly rain again for a few hours, but by 10 am it had pretty well stopped. No wind today again so made good time, a very good travel day. Stopped at every rest area to get out and stretch, check our tires etc, then carry on. Feels good to stretch every hour or so, my back and legs love it. Not only that we drink a lot of water and it has to go somewhere.
|couple hours like this, not much traffic|
or scenery either
|Wonder if Pocahontas is still there?|
Then into Missouri before noon.
|Our first sighting of the ARCH,|
maybe someday we will check it out.
|construction going on there|
|wonderful roads and rolling hills|
|This guy has his load covered as required,|
but the tailgate is down?? HMM...
|Downtown Rosebud Missouri|
Passed a few gas stations with very cheap gas and this one was easy access for us, towing the car, so pulled in and topped up our tank.
|$1.87.9 ($2.47.9 Canadian)|
65 cents a litre, love it !
|taking the 5 miles into the Campground|
This the place, check out the link to Lost Valley Lake (we found it, so its not lost anymore) if you care, click HERE it is amazing ! A membership campground that we can stay in 2 times a year up to 2 weeks at a time. Free for us, part of our membership. Fullhookups including 50 amp if you need it, and free high speed wifi. The facilities here are amazing too. But we are only staying 2 nights this time, have things we would like to do on down the road.
We were checked in and all set up by noon. Time to make a light lunch and putter around. Few minor repairs just cause I can and have the time.
|nice large sights|
|Beach and boathouse|
|Over 70 rental trailers|
Lotsa people here and their big Halloween weekend is coming up, will be a zoo, glad we will not be here, already did that last weekend.
Last Sunday we were busy and Suzie missed her favorite tv show Madame Secretary. I found it on line and because of the free high speed wifi here she was able to watch her show! She a very happy lady now.
|First time we have done this and worked wonderful|
The afternoon skies cleared and we had sunshine, pretty warm temps too, perfect !
As I was prepping supper she spotted deer out the living room window not too far away. I did manage to get a quick shot, (not very good) before it headed into the woods.
|see the deer?|
Supper tonight on our Weber Q (finally) grilled cod fish fillets and acorn squash to go with our tasty salad.
|nice to use our Weber again,|
its been a few days
|yummy? Yes !|
A few things to do tomorrow and we head out Friday morning. Gonna be a wonderful day tomorrow so will make use of it.
Glad that you dropped in and said hi. Hope your day was as good as ours was.
