Your route will take you within fifty or sixty miles of Greensburg, Kansas (home of the Big Well and more recently the devastating tornado) if you are following US 160 - - if you happen to follow US 54, you will pass right through Greensburg.

Hi Charlie.
Same truck, bought a cap. It's an A.R.E that I bought last month.

Eureka! Kansas that is. A cute little town east of Wichita. Stopped early and went for a bike ride in the old town. Picked up some eats at the market. Getting ready for dinner.

Found a small RV park just off of the main drag. $10 for full hookups with Passport America, great deal. Jan has fallen in love with a couple of puppies from around here...

It's a Hudson, possibly a 41.

I know the suspense is just killing you, so I will put you out of your misery.

It is a 1947 Hudson Commodore Eight. Originally built with an "L" head straight 8 engine. .

Thanks for the info Jim. The park owner has a nice collection of vintage cars and trailers. Enchanted Trails is a great place to visit.

Had another night of T-Storms last night in Eureka. Headed for MO today.

We are just south of Lebanon, MO this morning. Spent the night at a campground that was a KOA at one time. Lots of road noise off of 44, but a nice park.

This has become a trip of Walmart stops as we acquire all the things that we forgot to pack. Yesterday I went to shave and found the blades and shaving cream, but no razor.

Went out to dinner in town, found a nice Chinese buffet. Today we make it to Farmington and WC. Then on to Du Quoin...

Richard, I don't know if you heard this, but there may be a small problem with Du Quoin...
Overnight storms flip campers at fairgrounds - KFVS12 News & Weather Cape Girardeau, Carbondale, Poplar Bluff

Also, you stayed at the same campground we did in ABQ. We were in the last row, near the Camping World.
