This morning we left Woodstock and headed southwest into Missouri. After 370 miles of interstate (boring) driving we stopped at a campground in Villa Ridge, MO. While driving thru Illinois there are lots and lots of cornfields and soy beans. There is an old saying “knee high by the 4th of July” today with the hybrid corns and fertilizers it is more like “waist high by the 4th of July”. When you go over an overpass,which is about the highest thing around, al you can see is green, green, green, corn and soybean fields.
We are convoying with two 5th wheels and Lorie driving the van with the speed boat attached. It was kind of hairy going thru St. Louis but other than than, an uneventful trip…..which is the way we like it….no accidents or other problems.
Tomorrow on to Branson West to our resort/campground where we will stay for a week or so.
I did a search for “zip lines” and found a really great one in the Branson area. Hope we can do it, altho it looks like only Linda and I if we do.
Jim and Bobbie we are “further west” now and only about 800 or so miles from you.
Have a great day, tomorrow
we will be driving again, but only about 200 miles tomorrow .
Love to all of you
Jim and LInda
