Jun 15, 2014 - Drive to Lake Jacomo - Blue Springs, MO

Sunday, June 15. Missouri is nicknamed “The Show Me State.” Largest city is Kansas City which we visited. The state is named for the Missouri River. Arrived in Blue Springs, MO, population 53,000, after driving 195 miles from Pineville, MO which is located just outside of Kansas City. We set-up camp and attempted to set a tee-time at Fred Arbanas' Golf Course, recommended by the camp host, but there were no tee times available for Monday morning. We decided we were in the mood to go see a movie, so went to see the "Edge of Tomorrow," a...

Aug 17, 2013 - Travel Day

This is a travel day through the rest of South Dakota, tip end of Iowa, and Missouri. Our first stop was Sioux Falls, SD to the falls. Interesting rock formations, just a beautiful park. Around 9:45am Central Time we entered the tip end of Iowa, which the Missouri River ran along side the Hwy with Iowa one side and Nebraska on the other. We ate lunch at Culver's, a fast food restaurant in Council Bluff, MO. As cruising down the road, I get a phone call, it was Judy (Our adopted sister :-) ),3 rows back on the coach. Think she was bored, as...

Nov 13, 2012 - Dealing with sadness and a change in plan

I will attempt to get up to date here on my journal after the fact. While posting this on the 18th, I want to keep the journal in sequence, only for my benefit, hopefully you readers will understand. It has been gratifying to both of us, the warmth and concern we have received from so many of you, our readers. Thanks so much for your thoughtfulness and notes of sympathy. As mentioned in the last entry, we were on our way for haircuts when getting the news about Lynn. We got that task completed and then literally rushed back to the motorhome...

Oct 30, 2012 - Blue Springs Elks Lodge

It was a nice warm day as we continue to get further south. Upon checking into the Elks Lodge out in Blue Springs, east of Kansas City on I-70, we began our normal hookup routine. As we were attempting to level the coach, we realized the right reat jack was not extending. We discussed getting repairs done locally or backtracking up to Moscow, Iowa, home of HWH, manufacturers of our hydraulic jacks and room slides. HWH has produced good products and with the age of our system, we have decided we'll make yet another side trip to their...

May 13, 2010 - “Couples on Wheels” or COWs is the Wisconsin tandem club.

We joined The COWS at the Midwest Tandem Rally last fall. We found them the be a great active club with lots of friendly, outgoing members. Although Wisconsin is a long drive, we get a chance to do some new rides in a much different part of the country with some really fun folks. http://www.couplesonwheels.com/ Reservations have been made for the Rally. We plan to get started on Thursday afternoon and drive about half way the first day.

Jul 20, 2009 - Jacomo Lake, Mo

The pull throughs turned out to be not very level so with our 39 foot motorhome we could not get the pull thrus to work for us so we had to disconnect and use a back in site. Pull throughs work okay for trailers and 5th wheels, with a motorhome you will need to use blocks to drive the coach up on and then try to level. No view of Lake. Not sure I would stay here again with a 39 foot motorhome.

Jul 30, 2006 - Missouri

Today we crossed Illinois and entered Missouri at St Louis. We got caught up in road repair on the bridge across the Missouri River and crept along for about an hour. At least we had a good view of the Arch. After the flat as a pancake land in Illinois, Missouri was a mess to drive with mile after mile of rolling hills and 70 mile per hour speed limit. Getting gas proved to be quite a task in this state. Even Travel America, normally very RV friendly with signs and special parking, was a mess with hardly room to move around. We found the...
