Just an airplane welded to a crane

City Museum, MO

Monday, April 7 (backlog) I like saying that I visited a museum, it makes me sound worldly and learned. Well before you start getting any high ideas, this is not the typical museum. It’s a work of art. Made to be played in by children and adults alike. Totally my kind of place. Located in […]

Ha Ha Tonka State Park, MO

Saturday, April 4 Originally the plan was to hike the seven mile trail at Bennett Spring today, but it’s still under water. Instead, Julie and I drive 45 minutes north-west to highly rated Ha Ha Tonka State Park. It would be easy to miss this state park as a RVer, because it’s day use only. […]

The bridge is still under water today, but it's shallow enough to cross now

Bennett Spring State Park, MO

Friday, April 3 It rained last night, and when I say rained, I mean RAINED. Six different times our phones alerted us to severe weather announcements: three for tornado warnings, two for flash flood warnings, and once for a standard flood warning. Don’t worry though, we weren’t forced to seek shelter in the Lebanon, MO […]

Greetings from North Platte, NE, where once again night time temps will be dipping below freezing, requiring me to pay for a RV park so that I have electricity to run my little heater and keep plumbing and stuff from bursting. Having a RV site also means having WiFi in this case, so yay post […]

Winding Down from Travel Mode

9/29/12 – Saturday Today’s hike was called Devil’s Kitchen, named for the interesting rock formations that can be seen from the trail. There are three distinct layers of rock that make up the cliffs of the Ozarks area. Dolomite is the bottom layer, it’s more impervious to rain. Above that is a thin layer of […]

Roaring River State Park, MO

09/26/12 – Wednesday Well, I did have one leak this morning, discovered at 4:30 am when the thunder woke me up. It’s the missing microwave rivet again, the gray putty that the previous owner had put around the screw on the top cracked to the point where water could get underneath it. At least it […]

Harry S. Truman State Park, MO

The journey South on Saturday continues until I find myself nearing Kansas City again, to avoid running smack dab into it a merge East onto I-70 is in order. Consulting my laptop back in St. Joseph earlier in the day I have discovered that Harry S. Truman park isn’t far from Kansas City, and it’s […]
