Apr 14, 2019 - We're not in Kansas anymore!

Just to be clear, we have issues with GPS and paper maps... they don't seem to relate to us very well... But before we get into the drama of today, lets go back to where life was relaxed and wonderful. Something we've notice over the past few stops is that where ever we go there are places with identified storm shelters... Each of the RV park offices had a room for us to huddle in if the alarms go off. Is this supposed to make us feel comforted? One of the towns we passed today, just off the main drag, was a tower of sirens - storm warning...

Jun 26, 2009 - Waiting for Winnie then Wending our Way West

We got the Winnie in the shop by 0700 and it was done by 1200. The awning is as good as new (hopefully). We toured the Winnebago manufacturing plant, but there wasn’t much going on because they aren’t working on Fridays to reduce inventory. It’s a shame, there are only 1,700 people working where there were over 3,500 a year ago. They are generally only building coaches on order from dealers (annual production <10,000 vs. >20,000 last year). Poor Max had to suffer through the repairs in the back of the Equinox in his cage. He wasn’t real...
