We're taking a year off to travel! travel blog

Trixie decided it was time to feed the kitty fairly early this morning, so we got packed up and at the trailer repair place a little early. We had an appointment to check the trailer brake controller because Don did not feel like it was working well. And sure enough, we had to have it replaced. Obviously this made us both feel a little safer!

Next stop was Lawrence, Kansas to get new tires on both the truck and the trailer. This was considerably more expensive than the brake controller, but nephew Chris helped us out with his discount. Now we just have to worry about all the tires going bad at the same time!

We got through there in record time so decided to go on in to Manhattan. While waiting for the tires I had found us a place to stay. I think it was the only place in the whole country too. Everything was booked because of a concert and game in Lawrence and a home game in Manhattan. I had called earlier with no luck but this time she said she could get us in. So I notified Michael when we were almost there and he was working just off the road we had to use to get to the campground, so he waited for us by the said of the road. It took a few wrong turns, but we finally made it. And discovered that "campground" was used very loosely! We were placed at the end of a row of storage units! Not very scenic, but we did have electric and sewer.

Mike came by later for happy hour and dinner. He was tired from work so did not stay long. He did say he had room beside his house for us to park, so we made plans to check it out before we gave up our prime spot the next day.
