Today’s update is going to be quick because time is getting harder and harder to come by now that peak season has hit. I survived Cyber Monday yesterday, and today is day four of a six day in a row stint. The work forecast is calling for overtime up until the end of season, we’re [...]
Coffeyville had it’s first hard freeze Tuesday night, with a low of 22 and 20 mph winds. Last year, temps like that would have froze my hose up and spelled death for my water filter, but this year thanks to some kind neighbors, I’m borrowing heat tape and have foam insulation for my water hose. [...]
I always get a bit excited when I notice the season changing. Being someone who enjoys new experiences, new views, learning new things, and meeting new people, I also enjoy the newness that comes from the passing of the guard from one season to the next. For me it’s a reminder than things are always [...]
Some people who full-time like to plan out their whole year in advance, and can tell you where they’ll be at any given date during the year. Others do very little planning at all, and might get on the road in the morning not knowing where they’ll end up that evening. While I admire those [...]
Elk City State Park sits on 857 acres of land on the wesst side of Elk Lake, just west of Independence. It has 150 sites among four small campgrounds, 85 of which have electric and water hookups and 11 of which have sewer as well. About 30% of the sites may be reserved in advance, [...]

The park sits on 1,500 acres of land along the north side of Clinton reservoir, and has a varied landscape of open fields and hardwood forests. There are 23 miles of trails to hike and bike on, and [...]
My last sunset at the Badlands is nothing short of amazing. It’s just the right mixture of clouds and clear to make for dramatic shapes and interesting colors. Everything I can pack up is packed, so there’s nothing else to do but walk the grounds I have called home for the past almost six months [...]
I got about two nights of relief in the cabin, that’s all, before the next rough weather alerts started going out. Today the increasingly familiar red banner of severe weather is parading across my screen as rain and strong winds buffet the already battered trees outside. This isn’t the usual high wind advisory, it’s a [...]
Friday Shortly before 9 pm, the TV stops working. I think it must be snow accumulation on the dish. When the last blog post went up at 5:30 precipitation had just turned to snow and it was pretty light, it got much heavier after sundown. The lights flicker for a third time as I sit [...]
Here’s the best advice I can think of: Either drive until you’re not in the path of one, or stay somewhere other than the RV for the duration. Right now I find myself not being able to take the former advice, and so I have taken the later. Still, even though I myself am currently [...]
