On the Road Again. . . . .

We had a busy couple days visiting with family and spending time with Uncle Dan. Terry's Aunt was buried yesterday and one cousin who happened to be there was one I had never met. I had corresponded with her via email when Terry's Mom was in the nursing home. I know Terry had not seen her in over 35 years. It happened that she had flown from Montana to Michigan to visit with a daughter and that was during the time Aunt Obie was in the hospital having heart surgery. They had not seen each other in decades and Sarah was able to visit with her at length just before she died. I'm sure that was special for both of them. Aunt Obie was devout in her faith and was not worried about the outcome of her procedure, describing it as a "win-win" situation.

We hit the road again around 9:30 this morning. It would have been earlier, but we were only planning on driving 230 miles. The campground we had picked out was a real dive and we chose not to stay there. There were others along the way, but no information on them. We are reluctant to "chase" down campgrounds off the road because we have been burned too many times. So we continued to drive and made it all the way to "BoomTown" in Charleston, Missouri. Full hookups sites here are just $12 and quite adequate. Terry is currently snoozing on the couch, the boyz are snoozing in their beds and laundry is being done. I am the lone one awake.

Tomorrow we will make it to Tunica. We have some free campground days at Sam's Town. Heh heh.

Till next time. . .
