Bastrop State Park

Teysha came home for a weekend so we loaded up the RV for a quick trip to Bastrop. This park had a massive fire last year and you can still see the effects of the fire. It is strange yet amazing how the fire and burn hundreds of trees and leave a few in the same path untouched. The park has a long road to recovery but it is peaceful, quiet, and a great getaway for a short weekend.
We built campfires both nights, roasting hot dogs and marshmallows, even in the cold night air.
Saturday we took a walk around the camping area with the dogs and met several of our camping neighbors with their dogs. I think RVing requires at least one dog. We exceed that requirement. She studied and we took naps, a perfect lazy Saturday.
We will head home today, back to work and school, but always fun to get away for a few days.

Basswood RV Resort

We certainly enjoyed the CKC at the KCI Expo Center this weekend. The Fall weather set in last night and even though it was really chilly it helped the leaves turn and we loved the colors. Rented a golf cart, got a blanket and we headed out to explore the campground. It has 4 lakes, cabins, a tenting site, plus the large RV park.
These are a few of the beautiful sights we saw from the golf cart.
Tomorrow we head for Branson, MO.
 Dogs ready for the ride around the campground.
 Entrance to the RV park
 Playground and pool
 Trees turning
 Small cabins on the lakes

 The road to our parking spot.

 Swing and enjoy the lake and Fall colors!

On the Road to Kansas City MO

Hello blog! We are on our way to CKC, Kansas City MO. It is a long way from Texas! We left yesterday and just North of Waco there was an18 that had turned over and burned. Of course we didn't know that while we sat in traffic at a complete stop for about 1 1/2 hours. People were getting out of their cars and just roaming the interstate. Made it through that long delay and continued on to OK. We usually spend the first night (if it is a 2 day journey) at the luxurious WalMart parking lot. Last night was no exception. We did made a short detour to the casino and I don't know why. They are one big smoke factory and they smell like it. I do not like Burger King but I dislike 16$ warmed up buffet food even less. We ate the Burger King and played the slots, gave them a little money and left. It used to be so much fun at a casino but now the magic has faded. Back to the parking lot at WM there were several other RV's there but also 3 cars with people living in them. However, we were too tired to care so we closed the blinds and said good night to OK.
Today we are traveling the back roads of KS and MO and almost at our destination. Strange things along the highways... A bike trail to nowhere, towns named Minnesota, Vermont, Miami just in KS. A black man with a mule and his dog walking down the road, a biker, not on that bike trail but headed somewhere. A man with a cart and a suitcase, he would carry one item up and few feet and go back and get the other load and start over again, progress was slow, to say the least.
I walked over to a Sonic to get a DP and a nice gentlemen invited me to sit in his car while I waited for my drink. nice helpful people all over the USA.
