And of course I visited the Commissary, PX, Class 6 and Clothing Sales.
Off to my next destination. The road was long, lonely and
hungry. Finally I gave up, pulled off on an exit ramp and enjoyed
the bag of goodies that Ged had fixed for me. It was good.
So I had planned some places for overnight. But the real plan was to decide about 2PM and stop by 5PM.
The planned overnight was around the Kentucky/Illionis border but I got
there way too early. I stopped at the Welcome Center & tried
to locate a place. No luck, so onward.
Around 5PM I stopped at a WalMart in Jackson, Mo, picked up a few
things and looked in the GPS for a campground, any campground.
The Cherokee Hills Campground
was close by. I called. They had a vacancy if was was there soon.
This was Ma & Pa Kettles
Campground. After I checked in we discussed when I wanted my
morning shower. 7AM was too early, they locked up when they went
to bed and weren't up that early. So I set up my tent & camp
back for a beer & shower.
The next morning after cooking breakfast & doing the dishes I was off to Fort Davidson
. Interesting story.
Next was Jefferson City for two nights to visit the MO Museum of Military History. Closed weekends, so I toured the Capital
instead. Beautiful. And got a dissertation on the leaders of the Lewis and Clark expedition
from this charming lady after she got her umbrella to shield us from the sun. It was hot!
Off to see Harry
with a brief visit with Churchill
You did know that Churchill visited Missouri
I really enjoyed visiting Harry's House. It was like going back home to the 50s.
And I enjoyed his Presidential Library.
