We are taking he roads less traveled…at least somewhat less traveled…through mid-America, aka The Heartland.
We go from south to north, Through Texas and Oklahoma on Highway 54, then through Kansas and Nebraska on Highway 83. The scenery is gently rolling hills, fields, some planted but most not yet. I rarely see another RV though there are no shortage of big trucks and they are all passing me. Yes, I mean ALL, as I travel 55-60 mph, which is below the speed limit but comfortable for me and within the safe range for WS.
Saturday night we stop in Guymon, OK, at the Corral Drive-In and RV Park. Yup, there is a drive-in theatre here (not open for the season yet), and also an RV repair shop and a pizza parlor.
The RV repair shop.
They’ve got it all!. A nice young couple own the place. They are RV’ers themselves and have made the sites nice and large ( but the trees are still small.)
Sunday we Arrive in Oakley, KS at High Plains Camping. I get a nice site with a tree. There aren’t many trees among the sites but there are only a few people here today. Yes nice site, but the woman who owns the place has Attitude with a capital A. I give her the benefit of the doubt…it’s Easter and she would probably rather not be working. Later I meet her husband and he seems to be in the same mind set as his wife. Maybe they had a fight? Then as I read the handout they gave me with a map and rules, etc, I see that this attitude is the norm for them. It mentions how they have cameras all over the park and will be watching everything I do! Alrighty then! I won’t be back! No pictures, sorry.
We spend Monday and Tuesday nights in North Platte, NE at I-80 Lakeside Campground.
I thought the dandelions were a nice touch! 😀
This is a huge park surrounding a little lake between the South Platte River and I-80, and yes you can see and hear the traffic going by, still it’s a nice place. The young couple who own it just bought it last year and they are working hard to fix it up. It’s a day use Park as well and there are picnic tables randomly placed all the way around the lake.
Joy and Shiloh went swimming twice!
I noticed in these pictures that Shiloh holds his tail out of the water and Joy doesn’t.
After the dips, there are the obligatory rolls. Oh my, what a mess!
More dandies! So pretty!
Joy rolled in dandelions and got yellow on her head.
Flowering trees in bloom!
Tonight, Wednesday, we are at Cabelas RV Park and Campground in Sidney, NE. It’s first come, first serve, pick your own site and pay at the store.
My view of the side and back of Cabelas.
These RV Parks ran from $19 (Cabelas) to about $35 a night. Weather has been windy and cloudy most of the time, but no rain. Or snow. ☺️
Tomorrow if all goes according to plan, we should arrive in South Dakota!
