We have been taking our time moving south. We spent Saturday night in Ottumwa, Iowa at a city park — only $15 a night. Then we stopped at an RV Park in Columbia, Missouri for two nights for $58. Did laundry and a few little errands on Monday, but mainly rested. Richard’s hands get achy after driving, so we do short runs and try not to drive too many days in a row. Tonight we are at Bennet Springs State Park ($24) near Lebanon. We had expected to stay here for a week to ten days, but on arrival we were told ther eis a “fishing derby” here this weekend and all the reservable campsites are reserved. We took one of the unreserved spots, but we can only have it for one night. *sigh* Should have called ahead. But who expects state park campgrounds to be booked full in October??
If you want to see just where we have been, you can see all our stops on our 2010 travel map and zoom in using the satellite view.
We have decided to go to Branson tomorrow. Neither of us have been there since the early 1980s. I expect it has changed quite a bit since then. We aren’t sure exactly what we will do there, but expect to find something to keep us amused. We looked around on-line and found a campground and made a reservation for a week. 😉
Bud was quite fussy the first day on the road, but not so bad after that. I think he will turn into a very good traveler.
