Life's Journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, totally worn out, shouting "Wow...What a Ride!"

On to Kansas

Monday we got up and finished laundry then got on the road just before 10am, after a few stops at rest areas we pulled into Lakeside RV park at Lakeside Casino near Osceola IA around 1pm another 160 miles down the road. Full hookups and $20\night right off the interstate. Winds were howling on the drive so it was a long 3 hours. Decided to try the buffet mistake-not very good.  Checked the forecast because of the cold front coming down from the north, decision time in the morning.

Tuesday morning we got up to a few showers, looked they were going to clear up for a bit then get really nasty in the evening and on in to tomorrow, time to head to Kansas.  Another 3 hour run and we are now set up at Clinton State Park in Lawrence KS, a little warmer but the winds are howling and the cold front is about here, we’ll have water until they turn it off and 50amp service so the fireplace can go all it wants. $50 for the annual state park pass for both trucks and $69 for 4 four nights, lots of roads to ride, fishing for Dave if he wants, the satellite dish is working, Verizon has 2 bars and we're close enough to Topeka and Kansas City to do some site seeing. 

So we drove 3 days in a row, albeit no day was more than 3 1/2 hours but with headwinds and having to follow a rv the whole time I'm ready to stay put for a few days. We have 10 days to get across Kansas and to Colorado Springs, now to find out what there is to do around here.

Until next time.. 


  1. Long drives are a bear...hoping you got some relaxing in. We just settled...six days is going to be grand! Nice park...Lv KC.

    1. I'm trying not to drive longer than 3 hours or so, since I'm driving our other truck it gets a bit much after 3 hours. Having to stay behind the rv for the most part gets a bit monotonous. Now for 3 more days of driving then settling in for hopefully 7 days. Never did head into KC, just didn't feel like.


Thanks for stopping by;We'd love to hear from you.
