Jul 24, 2017 - Mad Dogs and Englishmen

We moved about 90 miles east to Cedar Bluff State Park on Sunday. The campground is located on the Cedar Bluff Reservoir which looks like it may only be half full. I'm not sure what the story is. The camp sites are really nice. They're paved with full hook-ups surrounded by mown grass. It looks like a boater and fisherman's location as all of our neighbors have boats on trailers and the trash dumpsters are stenciled with "No Fish". We'll be here for 5 nights.

We were leaving Basswood at about 8:50 AM and drove out to the interstate. We stopped for diesel at the QT, as they have the cheapest diesel that we have seen for quite a while. It was $2.89 per gallon, vs $2.99-$3.05. We then went south to pick up I-70 west. We drove about 220 miles to the little town of Ellis, about midway through Kansas. We had found this campground on the Internet. It is a small town park with 30 amp and water. We picked a site, set up and walked the dogs over to the Post Office. We had our mail delivered to this small...
