We took a day off and got some things done. Haircuts, shopping, and more. Had time to sightsee a little too. Then off we go. The scenery is hard to describe but a sight to see. I will get the pictures up on google drive that I shared so you can see them. If you ever get a chance you should drive the country.
We also toured Wall Drug town. Great breakfast and lots of things to do. Lots of site seeing here too.
Beautiful morning looking East. Had rain and thunderstorm as we woke up. Then a flash and a very loud BANG! Lightning hit in the park somewhere. The Internet has been weird so I think it was affected. I can live with a cool 50s at night and 70s in the daytime. We are staying an extra day so the last of the rain comes through tonight then off we go. It could take us three days to get through South Dakota.
We almost did not get off yesterday. We opened the door at the Heinen’s and the door lock broke. Talk about one more thing. The digital lock we have will be sent back and Duane saved us by getting Berny to a local RV store. Then Berny and Duane installed the lock. Yea it works – off we went. Maintenance is getting to be a daily life at times. At least it is not hot.
Interesting to wait at the service center with all the people. Most have diesel pushers in for service or repair. There were three smaller units besides ours. We even saw another Intent! Some had kids and they were cute and interested in the cats a lot. They were missing their pets. We have seen a lot of RVs and Berny is looking at a different one with a little more room (ours is 30 ft and he is looking at 34 to 38 ft). The bigger ones seem nicer with better furniture, washer, dryer, large refrig, convection microwave, and you can get induction cooktop as well. Comes with couch and lounge chairs so more room for others. We will see how things go in this thing first.
Weather is rain with more rain and storms forecasted. Here we go again. After Winnebago, we will head back to Sharon and Duane’s to pick up the mail (if it is there).then head for glacier park. We hope to site see on the way and stop for 2 to 3 weeks in Glacier Park.
We will be at Winnebago one more night as they have one thing to complete tomorrow but air is fixed! So back to the parkS and to make dinner and get a long shower. We decided after the Winnebago stop, to go to Mason City and shop at Walmart and Target and then go to the in-laws. My phone is worn and we are looking at new ones. We will see what is out there. Berny needs new bike pedals for his bike and I need things from the grocery store.
We are in line and waiting for a call for the services. It may be tomorrow or Wednesday. Meanwhile, we thought we would play with bikes. Uncovered them and they were dirty (expected) but then one bike was missing a pedal. Our luck continues to be bad. At least it is replaceable and Berny may be able to get it in town or at next Walmart stop.
And again, there is thunderstorms and rain with a tornado watch out. More fun. We hope to only see rain and thunderstorms. At least it is cool here.
Arrived yesterday at my in-laws, Sharon and Duane’s farm – they are great people to take us in for two days as we had to wait till Monday to go to Winnebago. It is nice to chat and see the kids as they stopped by again. They really made us feel at home. Had a great dinner a buffet pizza place and the pizza desert was fabulous. We hope to meet up with them in September in Missouri with other families to catch up some more.
When we arrived they had a package for us – the WIFI extender and my Texas License. Yes indeed- this is nice. Now Berny has to reinstall the extender and see if this one works. No internet at all is frustrating Especially teaching on line.
At Osage RV Park, MO. We found out there is a youth baseball playoff this weekend nearby and the campground has had a stream of RVs and kids come in. It looks like an RV show here. It has been fun as we saw a lot f different types.
Weather here is great and the park is one of the nicest we have seen so far. Lots to do in area, close to highway and a few stores. They have a pool and miniature golf too.
