Walmart Collinsville Illinois

         Cooler last night and no more Tornado warnings is a good thing! Up early then a nice walkabout the resort enjoying the sunrise.
nice flowers and I won't name them, cause I will be wrong
for sure
         Then secure our coach to travel, we pulled out at 8:15 am taking a few back roads to I-44 heading east missing the toll roads. Mostly a sunny day and some winds (25 mph) but not too bad, mostly, almost tailwinds.
nice back roads for the first hour
           Then on I-44 for the rest of the day. Our Sirius satellite radio is sure nice for these days, we just boogy along, dancing, singing and tapping our feet with the tunes from the 60's. Sufficient rest areas so we could get out and stretch, about every 90 minutes =perfect.
first neat water tower
          Then the Missouri Rest area love these! On Route 66...
       Back on the road enjoying the great weather and scenery, We never tire of our travels.
Is this a water tower  or full of Bourbon?
            Through St.Louis friday at 3 pm really no traffic at all we were surprised. Saw the Arch again but really no desire to stop. Crowds, people, traffic, city, really not our style.
      Here we are set up at Walmart, 
             Through St Louis, fuel up at the Flying J Rv lanes,  no problem and arrived at the Walmart 3:30 pm. Time to walkabout Walmart pick up a few things, make sure we can park here for the night and all is good.           Read and compute for a while then whip up supper.
           Tonight a chicken pot pie and a salad, easy tasty meal on the road. For the recipe you can click HERE or my recipe blog top right sidebar. Love our propane oven ! No electricity needed.
so easy and so tasty
sure hit the spot
         Now we can relax a bit more , watch a movie maybe and call it a night, our Travels are going great as usual.
336 miles today
      Glad that y'all stopped by again to check us out all is wonderful here as usual, Hope you as good or better.

  3. We have found some terrific rest stops in our travels. We've also found some that just allow us space to get off the road. We also use plenty Walmarts in our travels.

  12. We've never been through there... when we do have to travel past St Louis, we've traveled some route really north and avoid it totally. Looks like you got through there just fine!
