I'm on the West side of the big muddy and it's beautiful. Especially Montana; breathtaking. Taking a time out in Spokane getting some maintenance on the coach and toad before heading to La La land.

Maybe we could compromise and meet at Branson, MO or someplace like that??

I used to live in Springfield, MO and hung out in that area before it "exploded" a "few" years ago.

Used to water ski on Table Rock lake, sometimes 10 miles or more without stopping. Ah, for the good 'ol days.

Very nice area.

boowho??

Nice CG that's in the right location to enable you to take off and see everything in the area - and there is a LOT TO SEE...

We will be here a couple of days and hope to hit most of them....

scootingranny...

I'm glad you are enjoying my posts... You're one of the reasons I've been posting the names and pictures of each CG we stay in... It's always helpful to have input from someone that has actually stayed in them....

We planned this trip for a lot of years before we actually were able to do it and so far, it's been super....

Anything I can do to help you later don't hesitate to PM me....

Good day today.... Went to see Crazy Horse and Mt. Rushmore... Both are amazing - one family is sculpting Crazy Horse with no Federal assistance and has been at it for over 50 years; Mt. Rushmore took only 14 years with over 400 workers and federal money....

Speaking of Sturgis.... Took these in June 2013.... It's an old dead tree that's been carved with a chainsaw and then painted. It's in the yard of a small "mom and pop" florist shop.

Boowho??

That's a pucker up drive. I don't think I would care to try it in my rig but would in someone else's.
