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!!"

Week One On The Road

We left Platte City, MO on Tuesday headed for Sparrow Foot COE just south of Clinton, MO on Truman Lake it was a big travel day of about 120 miles.
We spent two days there to visit Angela's mom and Stepdad.     
We pretty much had the campground to our self. We love staying at COE campground's the sites have more room for us and the dogs.

Thursday we moved on to Branson, MO another big travel day 130 miles.
We had reservation at the Escapees RV Club at Turkey Creek RV Village.

Not quite what we were expecting it's a small park and parking is close together but its quiet and the price is right. We are about 5 min from downtown Branson and its sits on Turkey Creek. This will be home till Oct 1.
We got out Friday and did some site seeing and shopping.
We found King Kong hanging on to this building. 
One of the places we want to go see the Titanic world's largest museum. 

Nice spot to camp.

Table Rock Lake.
The Branson Bell .

Angela found the bus she use to ride to school !!!

That commit is going to cost

Love Branson but haven't been there for several years. What shows are you going to see? The Texas Tenors are fantastic.

Judy and Emma said...

Will you be taking in any shows while in Branson?

Rick and Kathy Rousseau said...

Always nice to be able to tour an area when the kids are back in school and there is a lot less traffic to put up with.

Do you mean Angela didn't have to walk five miles uphill in knee deep snow to get to school? Kathy did!

Be Safe and Enjoy!

It's about time.

I really like your travel days - 120 miles sounds a bit right!

Just remember - put your lifejackets on when you go on that Titanic tour - you just never know!

We stayed about an hour from Branson, but never did get to town...Den doesn't like crowds and it always is..

That's an Escapees park we've not yet been to. Some are better than others.

However, gotta love the COE parks, right?

We are thinking about Branson after our Cameo is finished in mid-October.
