May 19, 2019 - Route 66 Illinois to Missouri

We had breakfast this morning at the motel then left to get on the road at 8:00, the weather was windy and cool with low humidity 67 degrees, had some problems a couple times trying to find the actual Historic Rte 66, we had to get on I-55 a couple times. We saw lots of attractions along the way, however since it was Sunday some stuff was closed we stopped for the night at The Wagon Wheel Hotel, the oldest continually running hotel on Rte 66 built in 1935, and has been renovated of course. We had supper at Hicks of Missouri BBQ which was...

Oct 17, 2011 - The Adventure Begins

We left home around 9 am, waved goodbye to the neighbors across the road, met Kim and Meg at Cracker Barrel in G-field for a goodbye breakfast, then headed west on I-70. Great traveling, stopped for a camper lunch in IL. We then starting thinking about overnight plans, possibly Wal-Mart camping or getting a camping site so I could watch Sunday Night Football. That didn't work out, Butch saw a couple of campgrounds advertised along the highway, I couldn't find them in my trusty campground book, but we decided to check them out. One was...

Oct 31, 2010 - Halloween

Our plan had been to drive to St. Louis and spend a few nights at the Casino Queen RV park right on the Mississippi River and a great view of the Arch, but called and found out they were closed for the season. We were disappointed, but figured it saved us some money (no casino loses) and decided to push on towards Branson. It was a beautiful, sunny day and it was a nice drive through the hills of Missouri and into the Meramac Valley. Lots of political signs everywhere and I think we will all be glad when this election is over. We also...

Sep 24, 2010 - Another Cuba!

Last Spring, I was held up in Cuba, NM because of a blowout in the left front car tire, so when I saw that Cuba, MO was on my route, I had to stop! It took 3 hours to get through Indiana, 3 hours to get through Illinois, and 2.5 hours to get to Cuba on I-44. I messed up in St. Louis because I didn’t note that Exit 40C to I-44 came up right after going over the Mississippi River so I was in the wrong lane to make the exit. The traffic going east was at a stand still, so I didn’t want to get off an exit to turn around and get to the exit from...

Jun 13, 2008 - Long wet drive to Missouri

Well, I left great weather only to run into the bad stuff on my way through Indiana. Just as well, there wasn’t much to see in that state. One day I will go back and tour the Indie speedway and search out what else the state may have to offer. I kept a sharp ear on the weather radio. The storms were predicted to be severe. I don’t know about anyone else but I am extremely allergic to tornados. Fortunately, just a lot of rain and some wind, nothing the rig couldn’t handle. I set-up camp in a Coast to Coast park 75 miles west of St Louis...
