Dodge City, Kansas. Outlaws!

Driving through Kansas was pretty. Bob was especially smitten with it. We've come to Dodge City, Kansas. It was made famous in Gunsmoke and in the history of outlaws and Cowboys. Bat Masterson and Wyatt Earp were among others who worked to make the 'Wickedest little city in America' into safe town. And to make…

Independence, Kansas. Little House Museum

We drove north and west to state number 26. Kansas! Cornfields and rolling gentle hills. Barns and cute small towns. "Wow. So much corn!" Milo says. We stopped at the original and largest Bass Pro Shop. "Disneyland for Men" Bob said. The whole store is uber decorated with mounted animals and paintings and art. There…

Jasper, Arkansas, Buffalo National River

We have finally made it to half the states! Arkansas is number 25. We spent some more time in the Ozarks. It was green and beautiful and humid. We had wanted to go floating down the Buffalo River but the river was too low. We stayed at Dogwood Creek in Jasper, Az. A nice family…

Ozarks and Laura Ingalls Wilder, Missouri

As we leave the gently rolling and heavily forested mountains of Kentucky and move through Missouri the land becomes flat. The green of the forests is replaced with the green of the large farms.

Dandridge, Knoxville and Nashville, Tennessee.

We have come to Tennessee, our 21st state. We are staying at Anchor Down in Dandridge, Tennessee. (Dandridge is the Second oldest city in Tennessee settled in 1748.). Our RV park is perhaps the fanciest we have stayed at. The sites are nice, many with amazing views of the Douglas Lake. The tree covered mountains…

Hendersonville, NC and the Podlesneys!

We are visiting The Podlesneys! Bob's sister Danielle and her family live in Hendersonville, North Carolina. We spent a week camped in their driveway at their beautiful house. It is so green here. Everywhere. We've enjoyed so much just relaxing around the house, playing with cousins Zane and Curren, seeing the chickens, swinging on the…

Savannah, Georgia and TT in Yemassee, SC

It was a quick stop but we camped a few nights at the Thousand Trails in Yemassee, South Carolina. It was a very wooded and nice campground far removed from most anything.

Florida-Flagler, Canaveral, St Augustine

We stayed in Orlando for a few extra nights to wait for a tropical storm to pass and then headed north east to the Atlantic. [caption id="attachment_3295" align="alignnone" width="300"] Another one bites the dust. [/caption] We camped at Bulow Plantation RV park. It is a nice place with large spots and enormous trees hung liberally…
