Sep 11, 2018 - On the road again

Heading to Knoxville, IA but skirting around Minneapolis just took the stuffing out of both of us. Not used to the traffic that's for sure. Next time, will just head back to I29 southbound. Pulled into a quaint little campground just off the interstate (I35) - River View Campground. New owners, great park - much bigger than you might think - lots of seasonals - but good camping for travelers. Highway noise was overpowering, but air conditioning sure helped with the noise and the oppressive humidity. Heading for Knoxville - no camping...

Jul 12, 2012 - Cabella's

We were all set to roll about 8:30 and then realized that we only had a few hours drive so we went to Granite Falls to the post office and the drug store. The Zantac that the Dr. said for Ron to take for his reflux isn't working so we will try some other OTC meds to see if it will help. We took roads less traveled to Owatonna. We were not only on the red roads, but the tan and sometimes black. Saw lots of corn and beans and some really pretty farms. We will stay here tonight and then head south into Iowa and will be with our granddaughters...

Summer 2012 Travels

Aug 22, 2011 - Passing Thru Owatonna Minnesota

August 22 2011 Owatonna Minnesota Founded in 1854, Owatonna is now a city of just over 25,000 people, and is the heart and the heartbeat of a greater community known as Southern Minnesota. Owatonna is known for its quality of life. We are just passing through and found a old campground just off the main road. The campground was pretty, but filled with just about all seasonal campers. I think we were the only transit. Probably will not stop here again. With our RV it was a real drivers test getting in and out, but we made it with no...

Jun 22, 2011 - Owatonna, MN

Today at 10:17 am we set off on our adventure. Most of the day was spent driving. We battled a stong wind all day. When we arrived at Owatonna, Mn we made a stop at our favorite store, Wal-Mart, to purchase food for the next few days. Then as we made our way to Cabela's we stopped to find 3 geocaches. We found one earlier in the day at a rest stop in Mn. We are dry camping at Cabela's for the night. There is a cold wind blowing now. Brrrrrr.

Jun 17, 2011 - Owatonna, Minnesota

We have moved on up the road to Owatonna, Minnesota. We had not planned to stop here, but we could not get into a campsite further up the road for a few days. We will use this as base camp as we find things to do around here for a few more days. No wifi or cable TV in the park so it will be a while before I can update the website.

Aug 4, 2010 - So Long to Minnesota

This, our last week in Minnesota, was spent in the south-central area. Our first excursion from our campground in Owatonna was a disappointment. This town is supposedly known for having the second largest Cabela’s in the country. For those of you not familiar with Cabela’s, it is famous for its camping, hiking, hunting, fishing, anything outdoors inventory. We went with a list of 5 items we just knew we would find there. We left with two items totaling less than $10 - both things we needed but weren‘t on our list. Our next outing was much...

Jul 18, 2010 - owatonna, mn

Today we drove 274 miles to this southern MN town, Owatonna. Iowa was rolling hills in the beginning of the day then changed to flat. It was a very CORNY day! Cornfields and more cornfields and when there were no cornfields there were soybean fields. Apparently 93% of the state is used for agriculture. It was a beautiful mostly sunny, partly couldy day with a high of only 84. It is actually supposed to be in the 60's tonight. We may have to turn the heat on after all the hot weather we've been through. We are only 60 miles from the...

Sep 6, 2008 - South Dakota and Minnesota Visit

After leaving Yellowstone, we stopped in Gillette, Wyoming to visit with Jack and Caroline for a couple of days. Jack is working out of Casper and spends most of the week on the road somewhere in Wyoming. He is still blowing holes in underground coal fields. Caroline is working at a local elementary school. Then we were off to Rapid City, South Dakota for some golf and rest. We traveled across the state to a campground in Salem, close to the SD/MN. We made a side trip to Madison (where we have all of our mail sent) and met Terri Lund who...
