Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Cabernet in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

We Did It


On Friday we decided that maybe the 5th wheel sitting in the drive way was over powering the sale of the house because of the size of it. We thought it made the house look small.

So with having our house on wheels we moved. We packed up and drove about 15 miles north to Basswood Country RV Resort in Platte City, MO.

They have a few  long term monthly sites but we only had a few to choose from for our 36 ft. It’s not a great site but they said as soon as things slow down that we could get a better spot.

The only bad thing is I have to drive about 20 miles to work instead of the 3 miles from the stick’s and bricks and I won’t be coming home for lunch. Oh well we have to give something's up to get on with the dream.

They have a nice pool so when the crowd leaves after the 4th of July we can try it out.


The office and country store that is well stocked.


We have several ponds that are stocked with fish I can use. Maybe when it gets cooler. Annie has her eye on this one.


The main road up to our site.


If anyone is headed this way and looking for a stop over this is a nice place. Let us know if you do we would love to meet you.

The only draw back to this place is they don’t have a dog park,so I have to get off my back side and walk them.

Saturday they had a golf cart parade.

When I was selling my house, the real estate agent wanted the rig gone from the driveway too. So, I moved it and the house sold on the first open house. Hope you have the same luck. :)

Hope the move helps! Looks like a nice park.

Carol K said...

Sounds like a good plan to get the house sold. Sorry about your new commute to work!

Jeannie and Eldy said...

Sounds like a good plan to move the rig. The park looks great! Good luck on your house! We all hope it sells soon for you!

Rick Doyle said...

Looks like you've found a very nice park to stay in. I agree with the others about the rig being moved while you're selling the house too.

I'm not sure why it makes any difference, but I'm sure it probably does.

Better to move your "house on wheels" anyway...Cuts the umbilical cord to the stix and brix, so to speak...Good Luck!

I totally can see why you shouldn't have the rig in the drive.
Your new "home" base looks great.
They had a golf cart parade in Mission this past winter. What a hoot. Some people really go all out!

Phyllis said...

Never thought that would be a distraction. Well! Learn something new.

When coming through MO just might look at that campground.

Bob and Jo said...

Let's hope the move brings you good luck
