Snowbirds - Winter 2006 travel blog


We left at a leisurely retiree's 10am and drove until dark. Usually we picnic for lunch and I prepare a wholesome meal of fat free yoghurt, fruit, and sandwiches with a sliver of lunch meat (poor Ken) and we enjoy the fresh air at a rest area picnic table. Foggy temps in the mid 40's made this an unappealing prospect and our intrepid driver brought us to Culver's, the home of the butterburger. Hamburger meat isn't greasy enough; these popular fast food places slather the bread and buns of all their sandwiches with butter and fry them. A large stack of napkins was needed to make our way through this delicious guilty pleasure. Shall we pat ourselves on the back for resisting the custard for dessert? We'll have to look for something more wholesome tomorrow if the temps are still too low for dining al fresco.

We drove out of the cloud bank at the end of the day, stopped for a bargain diesel fill up, and are one of two RV's in our campground here in Cuba MO. After the excitement of driving through ice storms last winter, it's great to have such an uneventful day!
