|The trip through Iowa was uneventful, not much to see there. It is a pretty state with large corn and soybean fields, nice farms and very neat towns. We stayed at two different campgrounds, the first one was interesting. It was a community of about 500 families, most owned their spots. There was water and lights but no sewer! Most of them had tanks on small trailers to take care of business and I guess the others used a service of some kind. There was a dump station in the park. Also there was a gate arm going and coming and the lady who checked us in did not tell us how to get back in if we left so we were stuck. We went walking and did not see one person out and about. We joked that we were in the Twilight Zone and hoped we could get out in the morning. We did of course but it was a strange place.
The other was just as different than what we were used to. It was right off the interstate and was behind a Phillips 66 station. You checked in at the station which was also a cafe?? (We did not eat there). The pull throughs were nice and long and the entire area was landscaped very nice. There was no overseer that we could determine. You were just on your own. There was sewer altho. When we went to bed we could hear the traffic from the interstate quite well and the trucks pulling in and out of the station. Of well, we moved on the next morning and did get out of Iowa.
WE are at Larry's brother Willie's house and are going to stay here probably through Tuesday and then go on to Ohio to see Larry's sisters (Hey, Judy if you are reading this we will be there about this next Friday). I did not take any pictures of Iowa so nothing to see, just read my story. We are homeward bound and should be there by the end of the month. Love Alice and Larry
