So far, my knees are doing OK. However, the big toe joint on my right foot really complains if I keep it on the accelerator pedal too long. I'm finding I'm good for about 300 miles a day with my rig. More than that, and it takes me two or three days to get over the fatigue. I don't recover as well as I used to.

As I told my doctor, I have more ambition than stamina these days.

We are in a PA campground in Ogalalla, NE, after being on the road about 6 hours, which is more than enough. In the mid-70's here.

300 miles is a very long day for me...too long, if I can help it.

Dumped my tanks this morning, the modification All Seasons RV did on the dump valve making hooking up the sewer hose easier than it has ever been.

Also topped off with propane and water, so should be good til we get home.

Nothing exciting about the drive over...just point east, set the cruise control at 70, and go.

Should be in Iowa by Wednesday...


Maggie

Headed home as well

Hey, Maggie, we are almost on the same timetable. I head out of Lennox, SD, early Friday morning, but I like to do about 600-700 miles before stopping for the night. I do stop half dozen times for all the necessities, so my day is 14 hours long.

I am opting out of the trip across Iowa on I-80, instead down I-29 to I-70 and I-65, then I-77 south to I-40 and east to home. The Iowa roads seem to have a lot of up and down stuff which with my trailer/truck almost drives me nuts. Actually, more nuts...LOL

Have a safe trip....

Yikes, Tommie...600-700 miles in one day!

That would put me in bed.

I enjoy the drive across Iowa...will take 92 from Omaha, go thru Winterset and some other lovely areas, and there are lots of pretty city park campgrounds to stop at.

Travel safe, Tommie.

Driving plan

Well, Maggie, I have a way of doing 600+ miles which sometimes means I do not get in the mileage I plan on. If i am the least bit tired, stop, short ten to fifteen minute nap, then on the road again.

The upside is I get to see the country, the downside is unless I have planned on a stop, I miss out on a lot of wonderful adventures on the way.

For next year, maybe late April, when I head back up to Sioux Falls area again, I will plan out several museum and other stops to photograph stuff. Meanwhile, how about Elvis....?

Each to his own...that kind of driving would not be enjoyable for me.

I love Elvis, as did my maternal Grandmother in Mississippi....he was a hometown boy who made good, to them.

She would wake us in the morning with her record player, him singing gospel.

If you haven't been to Graceland, you should go.

Very tastefully done, basically preserving his life as it was at the time of his death...costumes, the pink Cadillac, etc.

Elvis

Here ya' go, Maggie. This youngster was absolutely wonderful, very nice, humble, and his tribute to Elvis was as enjoyable as if Elvis himself had been singing.

I had an opportunity to chat with him for about five minutes after his performance. Felt like i was about fifty years younger....and I like this idea!

My favorite is:

Never mind the dog. Beware of owner!

My favorite is the sign that says, "Uncle Bert is at it again, have gone for help. No matter what, don't go inside!"
