Apr 30, 2016 - Kansas City Barbecue!

Saturday, April 30. I cannot believe this is the last day of April. Lynd and I have had a marvelous day. It started out rainy early this morning, but gradually cleared off into a beautiful day. To get out adventures started today, we crossed the Kansas River into the city of Lawrence and visited the University of Kansas. It is a large campus and like VT has lots of construction all over the main portion of the campus. We attempted to go to the visitor's center, but it was closed today. There were several places named Naismith: Naismith...

2016 RV Trip

Apr 29, 2016 - Lawrence, Kansas

Good Evening to all, Lynd and I arrived in Lawrence, KS this afternoon around 3:30 CDT. It is raining, breezy and a cool 55 degrees. Looks like it will be time for jackets when we venture out. As you probably already know, Lawrence is the home of the University of Kansas Jayhawks. They have multiple billboards on I-70 to let you know they reign supreme here. That is ok, we will fly our Hokie flag anyway. The trip was uneventful, thankfully and we missed rush hour traffic in St. Louis this morning and Kansas City traffic this afternoon. That...

2016 RV Trip

Sep 30, 2015 - Kansas City, Kansas - Patty & Tom Koehler

Hello Everyone, Today we traveled further West to Kansas City, Kansas to meet our good friends Patty & Tom Koehler. We met them a year ago at Cedar Keys in Florida and have kept in touch. Having a house just outside the city with 5+ acres allowed us to park in their driveway with ease! The night we arrived we went out to eat at an old establishment called Fritz’s. This was unique because of how the food is ordered and delivered. You take a seat in a booth, order via a phone, and the food is shortly delivered by an overhead train and...

Dec 14, 2014 - Kansas City Kansas & Kansas City MO A Short Visitors Guide

The history of the Kansas City Metropolitan area begins in the 19th century as the Frenchmen, from St Louis MO, moved up the Missouri River to trap for furs and trade with the Indians. The Kansas City Metro area straddles the border between Missouri and Kansas at the confluence of the Kansas and Missouri Rivers. Kansas City Missouri was founded in 1838 and defeated its rival Westport to become the predominate city west of St Louis. The Santa Fe and Oregon trails ran through this area. In 1854, when Kansas was opened to settlement, the...

Dec 13, 2014 - Kansas City Kansas and the Famous Plaza Lights

I am not a deceptive person, but I used pictures of German Shepherds to grab your attention. I have always been and always will be, a fan of the GSD as I am really impressed by everything they represent. I do not impress easily, so I wanted to share with you my last weekends experience in Kansas City. I know you are thinking Rick, you are supposed to be in Texas. Well that is true, but to get to Kansas City from here I have to go through almost half of Texas, Oklahoma and then finally the Yellow Brick Road and the Gal that made Kansas...

Sep 20, 2014 - Day 20 Day with Friends in KC,KS

Local shopping and a trip to Camper World, Past the Harley Factory and a home cooked meal at our friends house. I had a present for Jeremy, a brick paver soldier in his likeness. I had a picture of Jeremy's face that would fit under the helmet and Erica thought it was just the funniest thing. The uniform is as authentic as I could make it. I copied from a picture we had of Jeremy and our Roy in Afghanistan. This is the third soldier I have made for the wounded soldiers in the 10th Mountain. On the bottom the complete unit name is written as...

My trip to the USA

Sep 23, 2013 - Monday in Kansas City

Another great day with once again blue cloudless skies. Today we delivered the children to their various schools, pottered around a shopping Mall (buying Elise her birthday present for 10 October) and then went for a walk along a local riverbank - a walk they will often do with scooters and bikes. After picking up Elise from Nursery School we went to Deanna Rose a fabulous FREE ENTRY small park for children. She LOVES going here and was keen to show us her favourite spots - feeding the goats, the teepee, the slides, the ice cream...

Sep 22, 2013 - Sunday in Kansas City

Another good day with the Tagg family. This morning we went to this enormous soccer arena where Lewis was playing a soccer match. He was easily the best in the Team and played with such skill and enthusiasm. Well done Lewis! Afterwards we went to Barley's Brewhaus for lunch before heading to the Plaza for a wander round their annual art extravaganza - lots of stalls and marquees with all sorts of arts on display. This is an annual event and attracts people from all over. The Plaza is where Chris works for his firm 'Locktons.

Sep 21, 2013 - Saturday in Kansas City

Very interesting and busy day today. After we all had a well needed "lie in" Nikki and Alex went off for Alex's swimming team while the grandparents sorted out breakfast for Lewis & Elise - French toast, bacon and maple syrup. When Nikki and Alex returned, sandwiches made, we set off to Louisburg Cider Mill(www.louisburgcidermill.com) where we spent a few hours enjoying the "hillbilly" atmosphere, picked our own large pumpkins, went through a maize maze, enjoyed apple cider (apple juice) and donuts before returning to our car via tractor...

Sep 20, 2013 - Alex birthday in KC

Children now gone off to school (now we can picture their schools) and we have had a facetime chat with Meg and Phil. Now off for a walk around their district to get a feel for the area. Already had a drive through coffee to start the day! After school pick up we went to their local private gym for a swim followed by a Kansas City speciality barbeque at Jack Stacks BBQ. A brilliant evening with excellent food only slightly marred by the long wait for a table. However the atmosphere made up for the delay, obviously due to being so popular.
