Harry S. Truman State Park, MO

September 25, 2012 | 15

The journey South on Saturday continues until I find myself nearing Kansas City again, to avoid running smack dab into it a merge East onto I-70 is in order. Consulting my laptop back in St. Joseph earlier in the day I have discovered that Harry S. Truman park isn’t far from Kansas City, and it’s…

Big Sioux Recreation Area, SD

September 22, 2012 | 16

Getting my South Dakota driver’s license was easy. In fact, I managed it the day I arrived in Big Sioux without even staying that first night. 9/19/12 – Wednesday Since there was no one at the gate when I pulled in, I self registered. There were three copies of the slip I filled out, one…

Sioux Falls or Bust

September 20, 2012 | 23

The second stage of my trip, getting from Georgia to South Dakota. Yes, I have my reasons for driving it all in one fell swoop which I’ll post about later since this it was threatening to become a monster of a post and I have less than two hours to find internet, get it posted,…

Indian Springs State Park, GA

September 19, 2012 | 22

What a week! The big adventure has kicked off in earnest, this is actually two posts in one since I didn’t have internet access until now.  This part covers the weekend at Indian Springs, and I’ll post up Monday through today tomorrow probably since I think the good people at the Starbucks I’m at may…

Two Days until Takeoff

September 12, 2012 | 25

With four days until departure, it finally stops raining inside the Casita. Perhaps a bit of explaining is in order. Some time ago I hung up a clock in the RV that also displays temperature and humidity, and the best part: weather based on the humidity. Anything above 75% and the clock thinks it’s raining…

The Tipping Point

September 8, 2012 | 12

Things are moving along at a rapid pace, it’s really sinking in now: in one week, I’m going to be on the road. I think everyone must have experienced this phenomenon at some point in their lives. You logically know the event is coming, but then one day suddenly you feel it and it becomes…

Shoes and Ladders

September 4, 2012 | 14

The bathroom is scrubbed, the blinds wiped down (they were filthy!), the grass cut, and I’ve gotten ant control that seems to do a much better job of controlling ants. I also made a serious attempt at trying my fancy Reese hitch out, but failed a bit on that (note to self: put stabilizer jacks…

A Place For Everything

August 27, 2012 | 20

  Well, everything is now officially out of the storage locker. A small pile of my things still sits at Julie’s apartment, but the past few days I have slowly been moving it over to the Casita and organizing it as I go, it’s felt a bit like a game of Tetris. I suspect my…

Looks Like Progress

August 23, 2012 | 8

What a busy week! The closer I get to departure the faster time seems to be moving. My to-do list is shrinking, but not fast enough for my liking. I did make pretty good progress with my days off work, and still took yesterday as a true day off to see a couple more things…

The Right Choice

August 3, 2012 | 13

Right now I’m doing my typical day off routine of laundry in the morning while I write a blog post. The thing that makes today different is that instead of being at the campground (where they charge $1.50 for a load of wash and $1.00 for drying – remember to factor the cost of laundry…

Thinking Out Loud

July 27, 2012 | 22

Yesterday I did a good bit of thinking about what day I should give as my last at The Job. I need to be in Coffeyville on the 28th of September, and I’d like to get South Dakota residency set up before then. The current tentative plan has me off work by September 13, which…

A Map and a List

July 6, 2012 | 21

All roads lead through Kansas City. Or at least that’s how it’s looking on my travel map for the rest of the year. My travel map. I’m actually going to be starting to travel, wow. Bluffton, SC to Madison, SD – through Kansas City. Madison, SD to Coffeyville, KS – through Kansas City. Coffeyville, KS…
