Day 3, 2010 Kansas to Colorado

Posted 08-22-2010 at 07:55 PM by HiHoAgRV

We pulled outta Council Grove at the bright and early hour of 9:30...and decided to take the LONG way to Colorado...

Straight north, past I-70, on to Manhattan then a left onto state hwy 24...

The 2 lane tour of Kansas...and I highly recommend it! Don't miss the Worlds Biggest Ball of Twine...

We did hit I-70 just before the CO line, crossed the line then headed north to Bonny Lake State park. The park has several miles of dirt road leading in.

The Trips first Uh Oh

Posted 08-22-2010 at 06:55 AM by HiHoAgRV

Driving up hwy 71 in MO, I noticed something in the rearveiw mirror didn't quite look right...

The Street side segment protector was hanging down...

It seems these things need more than 1 small bracket with 2 rivits to stay in place and ours just ripped ot the rivits!

Day 2

Posted 08-22-2010 at 06:50 AM by HiHoAgRV

Todays route is from Branson MO to Council Grove KS to meet up with a Pal for the night. Traffic was light so we ran the Interstate until just after COLAWS (we did spend over an hour browsing the rows of wrecked campers, scoring a few hard-2-find Airstream parts), then headed north just befor Joplin. We twisted thru Ft Scott KS and made quick stop to get our National Parks Passport stamped. Many of the small towns on this route still have the brick roads and small town charm...to bad we were kinda...

Alumatherapys day 1 on the road

Posted 08-21-2010 at 06:10 AM by HiHoAgRV

Day 1 on the road. 10 hours Jackson MS to Branson MO. We completly avoided Interstates except around Little Rock. This was our fisrt time to see the new bridge over the Mississippi river at Greenville, it is a nice looking double suspension deal. Not much cell coverage tonight in TableRock State Park so I don't dare to try and upload photos.
1st round of pit stops netted 13.1 mpg

kinda tough posting on a PDA...
