Sep 30, 2013 - York to Kanapolis and a surprise

Monday: 9/30 Woke in York, NE, to a fine day. Well the weather was fine - but not the status of our batteries. They showed red on all our gauges. Not sure what is happening. So we turned on the generator for about 15 minutes and they were fully charged. Hmmmm! That acts like my phone batteries when they get worn out. No charge one minute and then charge very quickly. Well, these are old batteries - we had to replace the starting battery over a year ago. I guess that will go on the list for when we get back to Wickenburg. In the meantime,...

Sep 28, 2012 - Lindsborg, KS

Lindsborg, KS, is another great Swedish town near where we are camped at Kanopolis Lake. Of course, we first headed to Katella's Konditori for a Swedish Meatball lunch. I also had the bread pudding with lingenberries which was outstanding. Then we hit the Swedish craft shops and took pictures of the Dala Horses. WHAT IS A DALA HORSE? The Dala Horse is a wooden tail-less, stubby horse with origins that date back to early Swedish loggers and miners that whittled this horse for their children during long cold Scandinavian nights. The design...

Sep 27, 2012 - Marquette, KS

Marquette, KS is a little town on KS-4. The main claim to fame is the Kansas State Motorcycle Museum but we found a lot to like in this charming little town. The architecture was the first thing that I noticed as we drove thru main street. Brightly colored painted building with lots of detail caught my eye. As did the neat look to the houses. We first stopped at the Library to get the address of the Hanson House – I had neglected to get it off the internet. The librarian was really nice and give me a brochure of the house that tells the...

Summer 2012 Travels

Sep 25, 2012 - In the Center of Kansas

I'm putting some more pictures at Pomona Lake. We are the only ones in a campground in central Kansas. It is sooooo peaceful. I'm watching the squirrels running all over the place. There are lots of oak trees here so I assume they are gathering acorns. The first part of the trip was cattle country. Mostly pastures - once in a while a hay field - but no crops. I suddenly realized that I had horizons!!!! You know how I love it when I can see for miles. Lots of small sunflowers (maybe brown eyed Susans) along the sides of the roads. We were...

Jun 4, 2010 - Museums

We finally got going this morning after I cut my hair and we both went to the shower house for showers. We usually shower in our own shower here in the RV but the shower house was very clean and they had a lot of water pressure, which is what I love in a shower. This RV doesn’t have as much pressure as the big RV and I miss it. Anyway, Ron had been looking at area places to see and found these URLs. http://www.ellsworthcounty.net/ http://myellsworth.com/echs/ So we headed for Kanopolis. There we met the President of the County Historical...

Summer 2010 Travels

Jun 3, 2010 - Over Hill - Over Dale

We had a wonderful drive today. Lots of rolling farm land. We seem to have left the wide open ranges behind. We even noticed that the yucca plants are down to only one or two a mile. Lots of huge round fields of corn - with the well in the middle and the irrigation sprinklers going round and round. The wheat fields are square as I guess they don't need extra water. They (the wheat fields) are a beautiful green-brown color as the stems are still green but the heads are starting to ripen. We met two convoys of huge grain combines and 5th...
