Jul 5, 2017 - Tall Grass Prairie

July 5, 2017, Jack & Bobbi are headed to the Salt Mine Museum and we are headed to the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve. The Preserve protects a nationally significant example of the once vast tallgrass prairie ecosystem. Of the 400,000 square miles of tallgrass prairie that once covered the North American continent, less than 4% remains, primarily here in the Flint Hills. We check out the visitor center, get the stamp, watch the movie and check out the exhibits. There is a bus tour that leaves in 30 minutes so I sign up for that and...

Off to Indianapolis

Oct 4, 2016 - Grain Valley, MO

We continued on I-64 to St Louis, where we took I-70 west. From here we stay on I-70 for 3 days all the way to western Colorado. Then we start our site-seeing adventure! The land turned dry after St Louis. Very gradually we are seeing the forests change to grasslands.

Sep 14, 2013 - Sept 13 - 29th Stop - Grain Valley, MO

Friday, Sept 13 We left Iowa this morning for our next stop in Missouri. I forgot to mention in yesterdays post that the Sioux River was down to its normal level. When we went by it on I 29 in 2011 we had to take two detours to avoid the significant flooding. One went quite close to one of our neighbor’s farm. This time the parks along the river in Sioux City were green with flowers and people walking along the paths. Our stop is in Grain Valley, MO. There is a huge open park right across the street to walk Muffin. They must not have had...

Sep 1, 2012 - Escaping Isaac

No tornado warnings last night, but it rained like crazy off and on. Just as I was about to go out an unhook everything this morning, the skies opened up again and I had to wait for a lull. We finally got on the road about 1100. The plan was to travel on I70 and get to Independence, MO today. Along the interstate cars with tiger tails kept passing us heading west. I hadn’t seen many Exxon gas stations in Missouri so they all couldn’t have put a tiger in their tank (for the youngsters, it’s from an old Exxon commercial that featured a...

Aug 25, 2010 - KC

Right out side Kansas City today. Weather finally changed today with cooler temps and no humidity. We stopped at a Nostalgia store on Route 66 and looked at all the 50,60,70 stuff. Unbelievable really at what they had at not too bad prices. You won't believe what era of stuff Randi bought things from and who the prominent lady on all her purchases are LOL. We had a bunch of racing boats on trailers blow by us today on their way somewhere quite the machines out of the water. Campground located right beside an RV dealer so wandered over and...

Nascar Adventure

May 1, 2010 - Grain Valley, Kansas City and Independence, Missouri

This last week we stayed at Trailside RV Park in Grain Valley, Missouri. It is a nice enough park near the interstate just east of Kansas City and Independence, Missouri. The weather was really nice, not too hot, and not too cool. We didn’t do a lot of sight seeing this week except for a day trip to Independence, where Harry Truman’s home and Presidential Library are located and another trip to a living history museum called Missouri Town 1855. There is a lot of history in this area. Independence is where thousands of pioneers began their...

Jul 15, 2008 - Kansas to KC Missouri

7-15-08 Kansas to Kansas City Mo. Got an early start, hit the I-70 rolling! Made very good time. No problems, Gail even DEMANDED to drive some. WOW! Did a darn good job of it too. Took a few pics but it’s all just scenery now. Not much out here but farms although you will see that Kansas is NOT ALL flat land like you may think it is. There are some benches here too like in Montana and the high desert, just nowhere near as big. We only made 2 stops all day, 3 counting this one, and are presently just east of KC. We will continue on the route...
