Monday September 23, 2013-Moving day-River View Campground to Peculiar Park Place RV Park, Peculiar Missouri

We were the last to leave River View, but at least the weather has improved. Instead of being in the 40's this morning, it was in the upper 50's, so I was able to wear shorts again for the first time in a week.

I've got to tell you about the 45 foot motor home that came in last night. It was one of those custom painted up rigs with a large matching trailer. We had been at the store getting fuel and when we came home, we saw this huge thing that was jackknifed into a site, trying to get the motor home loose from the trailer. It was right up behind the rear of our trailer and from the street, it looked like he was right up against it. I went and looked and there was plenty of room, but they made a lot of noise and let me tell you, he had to work to get that trailer parked and then get the MH loose and out of the way.

We were up early this morning to have our coffee because we have over 400 miles to go today. We made good time and were hooked up and pulling out before 9. We would have been earlier but I waited on the guy from Nobles RV to get backed out with one of the demo units. 

At any rate, we were soon on the highway and were actually out of Minnesota and into Iowa before 10. We made some good time and made a stop at a Flying J for a pit stop and to pick up some breakfast. I deployed a few Munzees and surprisingly, they were captured this afternoon!

We made a couple more pit stops and one for me to just stretch my legs from the long day's drive but pulled into the Peculiar Park Place RV Park a little after 5. This place is.....peculiar. The streets are named for Monopoly properties. Boardwalk, Marvin Gardens, St. James, Pennsylvania Ave. Our site is on Park Place Parkway. It's not a bad place, just an odd name, but it's also the name of the town it's in.

Here we are, all set up and ready to relax. We've only got a couple hundred miles to go tomorrow, to Branson MO. Should be a much easier day.

So long.
