Hello All! I arrived safely to camp site #1, in Oakley, Kansas.High Plains RV PARK. Nothing to write home about.,...very austere. Just a big gravel lot...windy. I arrived about 2:15 Denver time....no one here at office.....just a message to call them. They told me my site #. I'm parked, had lunch....no sign of any camp employees. This is NOT ON MY RECOMMEND LIST. IT'll do for an O/N stop...barely. One point above a Walmart.
IMO! I think I'll cancel this stop when I come through with "Goliath"

Drive was lengthy, uneventful...got here sooner than I expected. That's OK. I'm tired, so I'll turn in early...hopefully sleep better than last night. Plan to pull out early AM. Left home at 07:15.

Made my lists .... Checked them off...left home without a clock, a vacuum, and my prepared lunch on the go bag. Always leave something at home.nothing really serious though.

Later...off to nap.Evelyn.

I have never been in Kansas when it wasn't windy, Evelyn.

Sounds like you drove far enough for your first day. I am always ready to stop by 2-3 pm. Driving is tiring.

Have a glass of wine, get a good nights rest....I hope you brought wine.

Maggie,
I was tired...listened to Celtic music all the way. That's pretty lively. I always sing along....sounds good with a chorus background......then when music stops and I keep singing....I'm glad no one else can hear! LOL!

The wind has not stopped! It gently rocks the BAMBI....helps me sleep. I had a good nap.

Woke about 2-3 hrs after. Cleaned up little Bambi...(from snow & stuff the grands tracked in when they packed for me). Now, it's all spotless...I feel better. Made my phone calls, etc. Now am ready to go down. For the night. Won't bother with tv or furnace /ac. It's low of 45 here tonight...my cozy comforter will do fine.

More tomorrow. Evelyn.

Good morning all. Slept remarkably well, due to wind rocking BAMBI. I could never live in this sort of place ....wind is relentless!

I had forgotten....my iPhone has an alarm. I awoke to the sound of church bells at 5:30...actually 4:30 Denver time...I discovered after I was ......sort of ...awake.
Greek yogurt for breakfast. I need coffee! This place opens at 9am, at which time I'll be long gone! First place I see open.....THERE MUST BE COFFEE!
Don't know if I can wait till daybreak!

If you get into a Trader Joe's, Evelyn, they have really excellent, inexpensive, single cup, instant coffee packets.

I buy the ones with milk and sugar already in them , and they are my usual coffee for "go" mornings....heat your water, add packet, and you have a cup of good coffee to get you going, without the clean up of doing a pot.

Drive carefully.


Maggie

Fun to "travel along". Main thing is safety. Should be a calmer day, hopefully. Been very windy across the area. Keep us informed.

Aero Press coffee maker makes excellent single serving of coffee. Wipe with a paper towel to clean wrap up the grounds in the towel and you're done.

Would also suggest the Stanley Thermos french press. Just put hot water into the grounds, wait a minute or two and insert the french press. Close the lid and it stays hot for hours. Great coffee. Got mine at a fishing store but they are in the Stanley Thermos lineup online. Hope today was a good day.

Today was indeed a good day, but with a few wrinkles.

I had packed some starbucks instant packets...forgot where,silly me. Bought ice for my coolers and 2 cups of coffee at first gas station.

I have a small electric Keurig for"Goliath" as well as some other small treats for him. They're waiting for him at home. I figured just use instant on my deadheading run this time.i found them, so, there will be coffee in the AM.

There was a terrible multi auto pileup on northbound I 35 in Wichita, Kansas. Must have been pretty bad....as I drove by (in southbound I35, I saw a fireman , above the concrete barrier, standing on the upended hood of a big pickup, twisted up at an odd angle)! I'm guessing maybe trailer of some sort was attached?

I don't linger at those sorts of sites....just keep going carefully. Not uncommon for looky loos in other lane to cause accidents. There must have been30-40 emergency vehicles. The backup was many miles, on 3-4 lanes of traffic...no exits, as it was on raised freeway. What a mess. Hours after I arrived here, I still heard sirens.

Upon my arrival here, a fellow lead me to my site and hooked me up.....discovered my 7pin electric plug had fallen out, plug head dead. Lucky for me, he said," I'll run up to the auto parts store and picking up, be right back".he repaired it, checked everything to make sure it was good, and it is. He tried to refuse payment, I actually had to insist repeatedly, to get him to accept. He and his wife have been work camping for several years. Nice folks.

This place ....AIR CAPITAL RV PARK...Wichita, Kansas is very nice. I give it a 10+! I will come back here with "GOLIATH" on April 8th.

More tomorrow. Evelyn.

Good to hear you're safely settled for the night, Evelyn.

Get some rest, now.
