I wrote in yesterday’s blog that we needed to find a shop to look at the front end of our Explorer. The front tires were wearing on the inside and we’ve had a vibration and occasional clunking noise. I got on the Thousand Trails Facebook group and asked if anybody here could recommend a shop […]

It’s okay if you find yourself humming the tune to Maria’s song from The Sound of Music, given today’s blog title. But I thought I’d share some of my favorite things in the RV lifestyle, from my favorite truckstop to my favorite campground, to name just a few, and why they rate so high with […]

We spent part of yesterday visiting with Smokey and Pam Ridgely at Mark Twain Landing, which has an RV park and a huge water park. Smokey and Pam are workamping there this summer, and we wanted to see them before we left the area. Bob and Molly Pinner had moved to Mark Twain Landing from […]

We left the fairgrounds in Sedalia about 10 a.m., followed U.S. Highway 65 north to Interstate 70 and took it east to Columbia, where we unhooked the van and left the bus in the parking lot of the Bass Pro Shop while we found a bank to make a deposit, and then had lunch at […]
