From flat farm lands of Iowa to the lush, green, hills of Missouri, today's drive was very relaxing as we were only on the road for less than 3 hours.
We were welcomed by Judy and Bev, who worked at the Missouri Welcome Center:
Our friend, Shelley, had warned us of the importance of having quarters when you are. RVing. We learned it the hard way when one occasion we had to ask a fellow RVer to change $1 bill as we required additional quarters for dryer. Typically, it's $1.50 to $2.00 per load in the washing machine or dryer at an RV Park.
We are staying at a RV Park in St. Joseph, Missouri. According to the brochure we received from Judy and Bev at the visitor center, there are a long list of things to do in this county with population of a 89,700. The topography is rather flat, but we are 823 ft above the sea level. The current temperature is 76 degrees F. The coldest month, January, has an average temperature of 24.9 degrees F while the hottest month, July, has an average temperature is 87 degrees F.
There is a couple with three school age children are occupying the "pad" adjacent to ours. The wife confided to me that they live in Iowa but are looking to relocate here to avoid severe winter weather.
This RV Park has many mature trees. Though it does not offer modern amenities, the manager, Jack, is friendly and helpful.
Have a safe and Happy Memorial Day Weekend.
