Jun 1, 2011 - South Sioux City, NE

6-1-11 Mitchell, South Dakota While parked in Gretna, NE, we toured some L & C sites in Council Bluffs, IA. We were ubable to go to a couple because of the high water in the Missouri River. Our favorite stop was at the Squirrel Cage Jail. This is a 3-storey metal jail which revolves and was used from 1885-1969. The scale model shows the shape within a beautiful brick building. It seemed like a really bleak way to exist!! We then returned to Nebraska and visited Boys Town. It now serves 550 residents in grades 4-12. The campus is spacious...

May 5, 2011 - South Sioux City, Ne (Scenic Park)

We got into Sioux City by noon and got set up on the peninsula near mom and dad. The peninsula, has full hookups, including wifi and cable; most of the folks that are in this area are seasonal people. The lots mostly have cement patios and fire pits. Nice spots with views of both the Missouri River and the pond behind. We will be here eight nights, at the rate of $161.50. They offer the seventh night free. The river is all the talk here, it is very high and they expect some flooding. We put a stick in front of our spot so we could mark the...

May 31, 2010 - Scenic Park, South Sioux City, Nebraska

Drove up I29 to South Sioux City, NB. A nice drive that was scenic, smooth 4 lane highway. The Scenic Park is a city owned park on the Missouri River. Only $17 a night for E/W, cable and WiFi with river view! Enjoyed watching to boats playing on the river but the area itself is pretty depressed. Took a drive over to Sioux City, Iowa which is an older town but seemed most of the old building had been turned into bars, college town I think. A couple of days was enough, ready to move on.

May 13, 2010 - South Sioux City, Nebraska

We are now at Scenic Park in So. Sioux City, Ne. We are parked directly behind Mom and Dad. We will stay here until we know things are good with Dad. There was surgery to remove his kidney, they had determined that it was cancer, with the hopes that it is encapsulated inside the kidney. We are all so blessed, the surgery went well, all of the cancer was removed with the kidney, and dad is now home from the hospital.(I'm playing catch up on this journal) All seven of the kids were here for the surgery. We are so blessed to have each...

Sep 17, 2009 - South Sioux City, NE - Scenic Park

Our trip today was about five hours to cover the 240 miles and fill up the Mothership. Gas was 2.59 which is a dime higher than it was in South Dakota. Here the Unleaded (87 octane) is 10 cents higher than the Super Unleaded (90 octane) as the Super Unleaded has 10% Ethanol but I just stick with the 87 octane Regular Unleaded. For about the first 100 miles today the scenery kept alternating every 20 miles between prairie, cattle and hay to cornfields. The last portion of the drive was all corn. We are staying at Scenic Park on the Missouri...

2009 Alaska

Aug 14, 2009 - A City Named Sioux

Three for the price of one - Thursday, August 14 We spent the night camped in Stone State Park which is located in western Iowa’s ‘loess hills’. Loess (pronounced ‘luss’) is a fine silt, created by glaciers pulverizing the stuff they roll over. Loess appears all over the world, especially near rivers. Some 40 percent of Iowa’s agricultural land is made of such silt, but the thing that makes this area unique is the tremendous depth of the formations. When the glaciers of the Wisconsin Ice Age retreated, wind piled the silt into formations as...

2009 Spring 2 Fall

Aug 3, 2009 - Day 1

Hi Gang, We left Des Moines at 10:00 and saw the keelboat that was used by Lewis and Clarke at Onawa,Iowa. It was very small and hard to imagine it was used by so many soldiers dragging it up the Missouri River by foot. We then went to the Welcome Center in Sioux City and were amazed at the information available to find out about the trip.e also went to the Sgt Floyd Monument in Sioux City. Sgt Floyd was the only person who died on the trip in 1804.We also went passed the old house on Sunnybrook Dr. It sure looks small today. All you Guys...

Jul 23, 2009 - Oshkosh/Toronto/Isle Royale Trip

This trip has been about 2 months in the planning. The seed was planted when our long-time friends, Dave and Judy, suggested a trip to the air show in Oshkosh, WI. Dave and Mike are pilots and have even built a small experimental plane together. It turned out that Mike needed to be in Toronto at around the same time and it was decided to combine the destinations, making a great little road/camping trip. Mike and I made our preferred crack-o-dawn departure from Fort Collins heading east and avoiding interstates as much as possible. This...
