Day 1: Moseying to Michigan

Ah, sitting in the RV at the Springfield MO KOA doing email and blogging. I think times have changed camping.

Today, we started at 8 with a photo in front of the RV, pulled out of the driveway and started our adventure. An hour or two down the road, the important question became: where's the gas tank. No one seemed to know, but a stop at the first gas station found it. ( Whew!) Then we learned we had to turn on the water pump before we used the toilet. Doing handwork I realized it's really, really hard to thread a needle bumping down the road and the roads in Oklahoma are very bumpy.

We started the license plate game and found 18 states, Ontario, and the Army-Air Force Exchange Service. Who knew?

Sandwiches for lunch, a stop at Precious Moments in Carthage, MO (verrrry interesting), dinner out (didn't want to push the cook-out issue), and we're at the KOA. Very nice and quiet except the trains every hour and the proximity to the airport. A couple of bottles of wine, the coffee pot set up for the morning, and the beds made.

Day one, over and out.

OK so who was the MOD? And who is today? We need to know these things! Prescious Moments? I didn't know you were interested!
We are about to put some steaks on the bar-b and jump in the spa--it was wonderful last night!
The kitties are all doing well, but a little off their feed. I'm sure they will make up for it later.
Thinking of you...all.
Love, Sue & Mike
PS--got the IMAC fixed--new power source.
