Future and Some History
May 10, 2012
|Our time here in Missouri is growing short.
Although our date of departure is uncertain, it will be no earlier than the 20th (10 more days) or later than the 23rd (13 more days).
We hope to have one day to visit relatives about an hour away.
We can be ready to leave in one day. The usual chores such as airing up the tires and air ride system, and repacking of the basement should be fairly easy to do.
Once we leave here, our plan is to drive for five hours or so and stop at Deer Creek Valley RV Resort in Topeka for one or two nights, depending on the date of departure. We hope to see friends, John & Lori, Sam & Rhonda, and Tom & Berni, while we are in Topeka.
One night at High Plains Campground in Oakley, Ks, and on to Mountaindale RV Resort near Colorado Springs the next day.
We will remain at Mountaindale for the summer.
Hitch Itch has been getting to us recently.
We spend quite a bit of time here in Missouri and may need to change that due to longer travel destinations in the future.
Arizona next winter and then a visit to Bryce and Zion National Parks in Utah will get us back to Missouri much later in the spring or early summer.
We are exploring the possibility of spending a summer in Montana, near Polson, Flathead Lake, and Glacier National Park.
Bucket List items include a trip to the northwest part of the USA as well as a trip to Virginia, North and South Carolina and several areas nearby and along the route.
I was thinking abut our family history today. My family has been in the Hannibal area since the early 1820’s. One of my relatives, Aaron Fry, started a town called Frytown which is now part of Hannibal, MO. He was offered an opportunity to own half of the plots when the town was laid out. However, he had to clear all of the lots of timber.
Since only abut 30 people lived in Hannibal at the time, he decided that it wasn’t worth it, so he moved about two miles west and started the town of Frytown.
Isn’t it funny how opportunities come along in life, and how things turn out because of the choices we make.
One thing we know for sure because of our choice to become full-time RV‘ers.
Life is Good!
