Our Travel Blog

Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our Journey. Don retired October 2011 so hopefully the travelling part will increase! When we are not vacationing check in for updates about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

Continuing On

I know boring title!
After leaving Lafayette we continued north, having our home radar on. But many stops to make still!
I must admit the blog will have less emphasis now on activities and more on the towns we passed through. But the amazing thing is we are still travelling through new territory and it is all so different than we expected, and beautiful.  Every community and every stop offers a small insight to the area, and we are enjoying every moment.
You could say we are taking a bit of a break  from the usual holiday routines.  We are staying in some "free" RV sites (aka Walmarts and Home Depots) and searching out some nicer restaurants as rewards at the end of long driving days.  And of course getting our walking in.
Our destination now is Winnipeg.  Yes Canada!  We hope to arrive there and see some of the city.  I have visited for various reasons throughout my life, and Don never has.
So back to the present.  We stayed one night in Fort Smith, Arkansas.  The next morning after the traditional MacDonald's breakfast we headed out again.
We picked Kansas City as our next stop, and found a fabulous municipal campground on the edge of town, called Longview Lake County Park.  This was an amazing find, both the city and the campground.  We finally had the right weather for a campfire and sitting outside relaxing and enjoying the day.  No wind is finally a treat!
We spent the day exploring the city.  This is the type of city that I would go back to, with a group of shopping ladies.  The historic downtown offers all the high end store us ladies love, and in a unique setting.  Just a wonderful day walking the streets and driving a bit to see the sites.  I must say Don is an awesome travelling companion, not just the great driver you think!  ha ha
Sadly as time moves on so must we.  Our last stop in the U.S. was Wahpeton, North Dakota.  Again we lucked out with a comfortable and quiet stop at Walmart, and a great restaurant within a healthy walking distance.
Tomorrow we will cross the border and discover Winnipeg, so stay tuned!
