Yes, that's us at Burning Man, in front of our 1974 Tradewind, during a six hour sand storm in 2008.

Did it do any damage to the finish on the AS? Like sandblasting...lol It could have made it look better, worse, or the same I guess.

No damage to the finish as far as we could tell. We wish it made it look better!

Double Take

Wow! We had to do a double take. First we thought you were referring to the two turn-of-the-century cast iron garden urns closer to the front door.

We never noticed the loudspeakers. Maybe they're for hurricane warnings? Sounds plausible, no?

AND back to your regularly scheduled thread . . .

In Arkansas we have tiny very intense hurricanes. We call them tornadoes. That's what the speakers are for.

They are going off right now in my neighborhood just south of Little Rock. Damage just couple of miles south, one mile east, and more on the way.

Now I also return you to regular thread scheduling.

Lake of the Ozarks, MO

the first picture is of Blanchard Springs, a totally beautiful place and a great place to camp...it is North of Mt View on Ark 14 and Gunners Pool is just up the road.

We moved up the road to Caulfield, Mo...to a coast to coast resort called Cloud 9......an ATV paradise it seems....a beautiful 6500 acre place with 6 different camp grounds....a beautiful place...nature wise...but junked up by humans in their desire to rape nature witheir ATVs and dirt bikes....
lots of rental trailers and people can leave their rigs here and most have seen better days....but it has been somewhat enjoyable as we found a secluded spot...

tornadoes have been ravaging the area and some damaged close to here in Dora, Mo, but we just got rain....

we are headed to the Lake of the Ozark area...anyone spent time in that area????

If you love Arkansas's Ozarks, you'll think you've gone to heaven in Missouri's portion of these grand old hills. The Branson area has wonderful sights and activities that I've always enjoyed, the Northfork, trout fishing, the mills, the hills and valleys and runnng water everywhere...but it's the more eastern Ozarks that have always held my heart. I grew up being taken to Big Springs on the Current River and Jacks Fork and the Irish Wilderness and the Eleven Point and on and on. Of course you're in love with this incredible country nestled right here in the heartland of our country! Now, how on earth are you going to make your choice for settling down? Best wishes and enjoy the journey and discoveries. ~G

Hey Yhottys, nice place just the same !
Thanks B4WEDI!

At least there's a chance of sirens warning of an impending tornado. In the San Francisco Bay Area, all we rely on are dogs acting differently and that certain "earthquake weather" je nais sais quoi to predict earthquakes. No warnings! We like warnings. For the most part, we usually heed them.

Happy and safe journeys,

missouri River tour..following lewis and clark

our continuing tour of the ozarks just continues to amaze and astonish in its beauty...we entered Mo from ARK and stayed first at Caulfield and toured US 160 east and west from gainesville to doniphan, eldinore to ava and found unparreled beauty...then moved north to lake of the ozarks and found more of the same....then eastward to just south of hermann, wine country.....

we have toured Mo Route 100 into St Louis and gawked at the ARCH and followed MO Route 94 by the river from St Louis to Jefferson City....stopped on the Katy Trail in several spots...toured the fantastic wine country in Augusta and Defiance...saw Daniel Boone's final home place in St Charles.......

Missouri, the river is awsome....Missouri the countryside with its beautiful rolling countryside is breathtaking.......

we are headed to Jackson and Cape Girardeau tomorrow....

we have stayed at Cloud 9, Cross Creek, Lost Valley Lakes and then finaly Cherokee Hills.....
