Jun 21, 2013 - Day Three of Our Trip Home

We got up earlier than we had planned and got on the road at 6am. We made pretty good time considering there was road work every few miles and the wind across I80 was outrageous. Bruce had to constantly fight to keep things straight. We pulled into the Double Nickel Campground at about 3pm...Hey we're back on Central Time. The campground is okay, but I'm really tired of dirt and gravel. I'll be really happy when we see grass again.

Jun 9, 2012 - "I Like Ike!" ****Double Nickel Campground, Waco, NE

"I LIKE IKE!" or... "I STILL LIKE IKE!" If you are a baby-boomer or older than you remember "I Like Ike". The billboards advertising the museum were claiming "I still like Ike!" There are about 20 acres in downtown/"old town" Abilene, KS that has Dwight David Eisenhower's childhood home in its original location, a visitor center, presidential library, museum, and burial place for Mamie and Dwight Eisenhower. We easily spent three hours there. The home was where Dwight E. was raised until he left to go to West Point. His mother lived there...

Jun 17, 2009 - Teton National Park

We pretty much just kept driving. Even spent one night by the side of the road. We arrived at Teton National Park on the 17th. We met up with 6 other HitchHiker that we know that were also on their way to Yellowstone for the G & G Rally. We spent a couple of days touring the park. We were in a great campgound with no hookups. So we used the generator. Right in the park there was a nest of owls, babies and mother. The day before we got there, there was a moose in the park. We got to see lots of Bison (buffalo). Two of the couples there are...

Jun 15, 2009 - Waco, Nebraska

This morning we took the trailer to the factory and they fixed my pin box and raised it. Then we got on the road at 11 AM. It is 1200 miles to Jackson, WY and we have to be there Thursday morning. On the way we stopped and got propane. We were completely out and couldn't cook and the frig wouldn't work as we traveled. We drove about 260 miles today. This morning at the factory I noticed another thing broken. The brake controller has an error message with something about a short to the battery. This truck stops the trailer fine by itself, so...

Jun 9, 2009 - Windy and wet in the heartland

We blew out of Liberal after only one night, having had enough of the wind (it was still blowing around 20 mph when we left – thank goodness for the strong campground wi-fi, since we didn’t want to risk our rooftop internet satellite in the high winds) and headed northeast to McPherson, Kansas. For a good portion of our route we stayed with Highway 54, which is an historic old highway through the heartland of Kansas. But at some point we had to head northward, so we turned left at Pratt. Before we got to Pratt, however, we went through...

Sep 20, 2008 - Still Going Strong…

We are now at Waco, Nebraska. It was a very pleasant drive, and I was amazed at the landscape. We had traveled through parts of Nebraska before, but it was all flat ground with lots of fields and farms. The north east part of Nebraska is a lot different. You still have all the farms and fields, but there are also rolling hills and valleys. Very pretty. We are at an rv park called Double Nickel. It is ok, but they are out of 50 amp sites, and they have a lot of sites that are right on top of each other. There was no one to show us to our...

The Frugal Travelers

Oct 11, 2007 - Waco, NE

We left Marion about 10 after saying good-bye to Glen and thanking him for letting us camp out at his Chevy dealership. They had the first frost last night and it was a bit cold breaking camp. We then went 6 miles east to Parker and dumped at the village sewer treatment plant. We had stopped yesterday to make sure they still let people dump and the road had a huge hole in it as they had had a water main break right in front of the dump station. It was all fixed this morning, however, and we dumped with no problem. We then drove 13 miles...
