Directions around Springfield, MO.

Hi folks...Just looked at Google maps and got the straight stuff on getting around Springfield, MO when coming from the west on I44.
I could have gotten there without help but could not have told anyone how without looking.
On I44 at Exit 69...Hy 360...James River Freeway is the exit to take to go south of town and meeting up with Hy 65 going south to Branson.
Those coming from the east on I44 will want to get on Hy 65 going south on the east side of Springfield.
Hope this helps...at least does no harm. Looking forward to meeting everyone next week. We are headed that way next Thursday for a few extra days.

Looks like we'll be wearing parka's and rain coats the whole week we are there and certainly the 4 days of the rally. I guess we'll have access to a bldg. of some kind so we can get out of the rain. As long as they keep the wind under control we'll still have a good time. My shinny truck and clean Cedar Creek will get a bit dirty. Bummers!!!
See you all there.
John, if you are in need of a nice park to spend a night or two in the Albuquerque area, the American RV Park just off I-40 is nice. We are here for 3 days. Drive carefully and have a great trip.

Yes we will bring rain gear and a jacket but no parka's.
Yes we have planned on staying at American RV Park the first night. Not sure how far we will get the second day but I think Clinton OK or if I can make it to Tinker AFB that will be good. Joplin maybe the night before Branson. It all depends on how I feel and the weather.
Most of the way we will have a tail wind so that will help mpg.

Wow John, That's almost a 500 mile day. Are you driving that pretty new Ford? That's a haul even with the nice westerly tail winds we've also enjoyed getting here. Don't over work that beast getting up to Flagstaff on the I-17. As we were flying up that mountain road I seen some gas trucks struggling trying to keep the speed up. I love driving that road..up and down is a lot of fun.
This American RV Park is a nice place. We were going to spend just last night and today here and leave tomorrow, but we're going to stay another day and then head for one night in Amarillo and then a couple nights in Tulsa and then onto Branson on the 27th. We'll probably start the rainy weather on Sat in Tulsa.
Oh well, See you when you arrive.

No 500 miles a day. I figure 4 days on the road. I don't plan on killing myself. I'm planning a relaxing trip to Branson as well as the trip back.
If all works out we may be in on Saturday afternoon.April 30th.

Sure hope all of you have safe travel and a great time in Branson. Sorry we couldn't make it but with our DGD still in school and also a Pom competition there is no way. We do plan on getting down there a couple of times this year if all goes as planned.

Don't rely on what the Weather Guessers call for, especially long range forecasts. Missouri weather is very changable and we could very easily have perfect weather for the rally. I'll be bringing my ladder golf game if anyone wants to play. I'm really looking forward to the rally.

John...Tinker AFB Famcamp is a great spot. Spaces are a little close but both times we have been there we had nothing but a GREAT time. If you have not been there before...be sure to go in the commercial gate on the south side on the base. Easy straight shot and the campground is within eyesight from the gate.
Here is a picture of us at Tinker 2 weeks ago.
DRIVE SAFE ALL.

I spent a little USAF time at Tinker AFB and have stayed at the famcamp campground. For a one night stop over it is the best deal in town. Thanks for the gate entry info.
See you soon
