on the road. finally.

Day 4

Days Remaining 361

States Visited: 3

Day One- We camped in Tennessee at a beautiful campground.  Hardly anyone there.  We were entertained by our neighbors a few camp sites down with some beautiful live music.  Guitar, bass, and violin.  Country music never sounded so good.

Day Two and Three- Because it was a holiday weekend, we decided to stay at the camp site in Missouri we settled at for 2 days.  We had a long drive, and bypassed the park we had planned on staying at, so we ended up at a “camping resort.”  We learned that the word “resort” translates to “overpriced.”  But, they had showers!  Best 50 cents we ever spent.

Our camp along the Huzzah river in Missouri.

Eric snoozes in the hammock with Crackhead (story on that later).

Today- We are on our way to Nebraska.  We have the next 2 parks picked out, so hopefully no repeat of what happened in Missouri.  There’s this great web site called freecampsites.net that I have been using.  It led us to our first park, which was a real winner, so hopefully the next one will be just as nice.

The dogs nap in the car while we drive.

For those of you who are wondering, the dogs are doing great.  We’ve been tying them up while at camp (most places require it) and they haven’t acted up, except for the occasional barking from Elsie when she hears male voices.  By the time bedtime comes around they are so exhausted that they sleep through the night.

We should be at camp by 5pm this evening.  Tomorrow, Colorado!
