Aug 26, 2019 - Greenwood, Nebraska

We left Kellogg around 0900 for Greenwood, Nebraska and the Pine Grove RV Park & Campground. It is between Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska. We have past this RV park numerous times and why we didn't try it previously we do not know. The campground is well maintained with gravel camp spots and green grass between the sits. They have full hook-ups and a cement block building that is normally a bath house for men and women but it becomes a tornado shelter if a tornado pokes it head into the area. Today the weather was cool and overcast when we...

Aug 17, 2017 - Greenwood NE

So far, so good. We left our campground just south of Sioux Falls just before 10:00 and headed south on I-29 till we turned west on Hwy 50 through Vermillion – the home of the University of South Dakota – then on through Yankton and into Nebraska as we again crossed the Missouri River. We eventually headed west on U.S. 20 to our one-night home in Oneill to have Michele's god son Robert over for some steak, taters, green beans and corn on the cob, with some dang good brownies for dessert. A lot of gabbing happened...if you can imagine...

The manager at last night’s campground told us he had found a 7-foot bull snake near our campsite the day before we got there. He said he wrapped it around himself and paraded around the campground with it, before taking it back into the cornfield next door (where it belonged). Kinda sorry I missed that sight! We made a stop in North Platte today to see the busiest rail crossing in the world. The Golden Spike has an 8-story observation tower, and 10,000 rail cars pass through it every day (sure glad we don’t live there). The wind was an...

Day 11 Greenwood, NE 8/238/2013 An easy travel day, we stopped for lunch at a rest area. A couple of guys were headed to Elkhart, IN to pick up a new trailer, they were admiring our trailer. They were amazed at how big it was! They were also impressed with our automatic slide hitch. They were wishing they had one. We put into camp around 3, we relaxed and went for a swim before dinner. We will be in to LeeAnns early to offload her mom's stuff in Omaha.

2013 Fall Colors

Jul 7, 2011 - Travel Day - Greenwood, Nebraska

Travel day from Henderson, Nebraska (Prairie Oasis Campground) to Greenwood, Nebraska (Pine Grove RV Park). Only 80 miles, we was to stay at the FamCamp at Offutt AFB but due to flooding of the Missouri River they had to close the FamCamp. And this is as close as we could get to Omaha. So here we are at this place and personally we would not recommend it but we had no choice this time. Will keep you posted about our visit to the area and also with Gwen, John and Aaron. God bless Ken and Fran

Jun 20, 2011 - Start of the Real trip

Left Quincy at 11:10 after doing a bunch of laundry and filling the LP tanks and putting Momma B's groceries away. We were forced to detour in Missouri on I29 north at exit 110 Rockport due to the Missouri River flooding in NW Missouri and SW Iowa. We had to go about 30 miles out of our way and when we got back on I29 we had to go all the way up to Council Bluffs, Iowa/Omaha, NE to cross the river. So much for our plans for spending the 1st night in Nebraska City, NE. We stopped SW of Omaha at a Flying J for supper, which was interrupted by...

Oct 2, 2010 - a banner day following a blah! one

We were up early and, without realizing, hurrying around to get out of this campground and on the road. It’s difficult to explain, but the place just did not have a good feeling. Not spooky or sad, but it really depressed me for some reason. There was really something “off” about the place. So we were on the road by 8:15! Note to self: it is not wise for people with long hair to try and manage the dog on a leash, a lit cigarette, a cup of coffee, and a “poop” bag at the same time -- singed hair is the ultimate outcome. There is a lot of...

Jul 20, 2009 - June 12-19, 2009 Greenwood, NE

Pine Grove Campground This is a nice campground but a bit out of town. The owners are really nice and come around occasionally for a chat. The place is packed and will be the whole time we are here as the College World Series is in town!! Bob is a friendly sort and gets to meet the neighbors soon after we move in. One of our neighbors here, Kenny, was really chatty and proceeded to give us 2 general admission tickets to the series. Thank you, Kenny! Opening day we got a feel for what the procedure was to get upgrade tickets and where to...

May 26, 2009 - All Night Long

So, we left at 9:45 and literally drove all night long. We stopped for gas at 2:30 a.m. and then both boys were wide awake ready to talk and play. Luckily they went back to sleep. Darin drove and I tried to help him stay awake, but I think the diet coke helped more than I did. Everything went really well except that we couldn't go as fast as Mapquest thought we should go so our 13 hour trip took 19 to get to Nebraska. OH WELL!! The boys were great. Here a few pictures ...

Oct 1, 2008 - Greenwood, Nebraska

Wednesday, October 1, 2008 Looking at Elk Horn, the Iowa State Capitol, Jordan House, Winterset, and the Bridges of Madison County was all part of our stay in Adel, Iowa. It was 55˚, windy, and mostly sunny when we left Des Moines West KOA. The time was 10:27 am. We began by going on CR-P58 and merged onto I-80 West. At Exit 60 we stopped for diesel outside of Atlantic. We had gotten 6.8 mpg. Eventually we entered Nebraska, our 43rd state. As we did so, we crossed over the Missouri River! The speed limit returned to being 75 mph. It had...

Aug 17, 2008 - Cruising Down The Missouri River

From Pine Grove RV Park – Greenwood, NE For the past two days, we have just enjoyed being around the trailer and “chilling”. Rudy needed some blood work done before his doctor appointment in September, so we drove over to a Quest Diagnostic Center in Lincoln to get that done. Then, we went by Wal-Mart for a few items. On the way to Wal-Mart, we saw an RV dealership that carried NUWA HitchHikers so we stopped in to see some of the new 2009 floor plans in person. After looking, we decided that we still liked ours best and of course ours is...

Home Sweet RV - 2008

Aug 13, 2008 - Sarpy County History, Whimsy & Nostalgia

From Pine Grove RV Park – Greenwood, NE Today was one filled with driving the back roads of Sarpy County, Nebraska. Our drive took us to Papillion, the County Seat with a population of 16,363. Other smaller communities on our drive were Springfield at 1,450 and Louisville with only 1,046 populations. The largest city on our route was Bellevue with 44,382. A day like today brings amazement when one discovers hidden treasures in small communities that lie just off the main thoroughfares traveled by motorists going just from point A to point...
