Jul 6, 2013 - Busy as Beavers

The last minute packing is underway to depart on Tuesday. What an undertaking to plan clothes from mid-summer in the steamy Ozarks to late summer in Alaska and finally a trip around the Western USA in early fall. Will we have the right clothes and equipment? Should we send some things home to Missouri after leaving Alaska? Are we taking too much? Of course there are the myriad of things to remember like the new camera to record the things we see, the backpacks, the air pressure chuck oh and not to forget the food! Brutus has undergone his...

What may not be so familiar is the weather – we will be traveling through some of the coldest country in North America, situated along mountain ranges and...

We have been busy beavers exploring the area around Branson. We love this area so much, we are checking out all of the campgrounds for future visits. The awesome RV Park we are in closes in a few weeks, I wish it was open year round. We visited the tiny town of Kimberling City, Missouri today. It's about a 20 mile drive from Branson. It has another awesome park located right on the Table Rock Lake. It is known as one of the best fishing and recreation lakes in the country, and Kimberling City as the Bass Capitol of the Ozarks. Jerry is...
