Except for the lady bugs, this really is a great COE campground. Currently there a some flocks of American White Pelicans that have stopped here on their migration route. It's not often we see White Pelicans here in the MO/IL area.

Our trailer is now winterized and back at the storage lot bringing an end to our travel and camping season. Today I値l set off a bug fogger to kill any Box Elder and Lady bugs that might be planning on wintering inside the trailer.

What a great travel season it has been. We attended four FROG rallies, Washington D.C., Branson, Goshen, and Colorado Springs and met a lot of great folks. We also spent a total of 18 days visiting the beautiful state of Wyoming. Most of those days were in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.

It was an interesting camping season for us too. We were evicted from COE campgrounds on three different occasions, twice because of rising lake water and once due to the government shutdown. As I type this I just realized that we didn稚 spend one day in a Missouri state park this season. That痴 very unusual for us.

We池e already looking forward to our RV travel for next year. At the end of February we値l hitch up and head south to Gulf Shores, AL to spend March on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.

LOL, it took me a bit to figure that out. It does kinda look like one of those commercials. Next time I知 going to have a couple of Corona beers in the picture so it looks like a different type of commercial.

That state park in Gulf Shores is beautiful. I'm just a bit jealous that you'll be leaving this month. We値l be staying at Island Retreat RV park on hwy 180. Be safe in your travels.

Not going South - golden years

AH! The golden years, do what you want when you want! We were tentatively planning on going to Texas in the New Year to get away from the cold for awhile. However it seemed like my body preferred to go to the hospital instead. I ended up with a condition known as atrial fibrillation not to unique or life threatening, however it has major impact on getting medical insurance coverage for out of country. Looks like we will have to wait till next year to be able to go south for the winter. Golden Years my a--. Safe travels.
