We fished today up until 11am and didn’t catch a thing. We didn’t even get one bite, so we gave up on the fishing and decided to go to Hillsboro and do laundry. After that we drove over to Marion, KA and checked out that little town, stopping at some garage sells. They were celebrating Founders Day in Marion today and they had a parade and games in Central Park. We bought some corn at a road side stand then headed back to the camper. Back at the campground today they had a run and the campground was full with campers and people...

Today we tried our hand at fishing in Kansas, so we purchased our fishing license. First we stopped at the Dam to see if they we’re catching anything, and no they won’t so we went to the campground as the girl at the bait shop said that fishing was good there. I caught a small bass at the boat ramp and Bo caught the Big one, a carp that measured 20 inches long. It started raining later in the afternoon so we had to quit fishing. Our license is good until 11am tomorrow so we’re going to try again then. Starting Mileage=107,003

And the road you turn on looks like a dirt trail. We went about 20 miles out of our way. Even the GPS wasn't giving us the right directions. Finally stopped at a Pizza Hut and nobody there knew where we should go either. I finally looked up the number and called. He kept telling me the name of the road to turn on (I told him 3 times we couldn't find that road!!) I finally asked for the road...
