we are getting ready for a Tioga road trip. We are headed to Van Meter state park for a 4 day stay. I waited to long to make a reservation for the long labor day weekend,so all the state parks were full except for Van Meter they had 2 spots left,it has only about 20 camp site’s. I got to looking at the park last night on the computer and noticed that it’s the ONLY state park in Missouri that does not have a dump station!!!! Oh boy this should be fun. We will update on Monday when we get home.
Something to think about,we are going to be on Hwy 24 and Hwy 122….
Sitting on the side of the road waiting to catch speeding drivers, a Massachusetts state trooper sees a car puttering along at 24 mph. He thinks to himself, "This driver is as dangerous as a speeder!" So he turns on his lights and pulls the driver over.
Approaching the car, he notices that there are five elderly ladies - two in the front seat, and three in the back, wide-eyed and white as ghosts. The driver, obviously confused, says to him, "Officer, I don't understand. I was going the exact speed limit. What seems to be the problem?" The trooper, trying to contain a chuckle, explains to her that "24" was the Route number, not the speed limit. A bit embarrassed, the woman grinned and thanked the officer for pointing out her error. "But before you go, Ma'am, I have to ask, "is everyone in this car OK? These women seem awfully shaken."
"Oh, they'll be all right in a minute, officer. We just got off Route 128."
Hope every one has a good weekend.
ONE DAY CLOSER TO OUR DREAM
