Kenny and Nancy call Oconto, Wisconsin home during the summer boating season where together they enjoy recreational boating on the Oconto River and the Bay of Green Bay. When boating season is over they become snowbirds and head south for the winter in their Monaco Windsor luxury motor coach named OWFISH.

Kenny lived and traveled in OWFISH with his late wife Barbara from 2002 until she had a disabling stroke in 2011 and passed away the following year. From then the OWFISH set, except for a short trip in 2013, until Kenny started traveling again with his new wife Nancy in 2014.

Back to Grove

We safely made it back to Grove today. On our trip back we went through the town of Seminole, OK to visit my sister there but she wasn't home. About 45 minutes after we left Seminole she called letting us know she was home then but we told her we would see her our next trip through.

Sooner Land

We left this morning in the toad to visit our daughter and grandkids down in Norman, OK for the weekend. We'll probably return to Grove on Monday. We used to spend a couple of weeks down in Norman but since the daughter is busy at work and the kids are in school the only time we got any visit time was on the weekends leaving us really with nothing to do during the weekdays.

Grand Lake of the Cherokees

Today we arrive at Grove, Oklahoma on the Grand Lake of the Cherokees. We are staying at the Bear's Den, a private member's only camping resort that we became members of 5 years ago. We can say here up to 2 weeks at a time at no charge. Once we've been here 2 weeks we have to leave for 7 days and then we can come back for another 2 weeks.

Lake of the Ozarks

Travel plans changed this morning as we continued our journey until we got to the Cross Creek RV Park in Lake Ozark, MO. Our route took us back across the Mississippi into Illinois, down US67 to Illinois 100, I72, then down US54 back across the Mississippi, through little towns named Beardstown, Louisiana, Bowling Green, and even Mexico. Getting to the RV park was 2.5 miles down a narrow winding road then 1 mile down a steep dusty gravel road. The RV park is mostly on the side of a hill overlooking a small private lake. The spaces are somewhat level with lots of trees. DirecTV satellite is accessible in a few spots but we were not able to view our satellite Internet from the space that we were in. The RV accepts Passport America and has a very friendly staff. As we were getting ready to unhook our toad the battery was run down from leaving the steering wheel unlocked for 2 days. The park owner helped us out with a jump to get it started. This was a long 330 mile route down the back roads of America and we were both tired by the time we got here. Our next leg is only 227 miles of mostly 4 lane highways.

World's Largest Truck Stop

We said our good byes last night and this morning as we left Hilly Haven Campground around 9:00 this morning. Today we put in 267 miles until we arrived at the Iowa 80 Truckstop just west of Davenport, IA. We've seen this truck stop a couple of times on the Travel Channel and since we were going this way we had to stop. I think the only thing that makes this the world's largest is because it has 800 truck parking spaces. We'll spend the night here and go on tomorrow morning heading to Steedman, MO.

On The Road Again

Just can't wait to get on the road again...

Tomorrow morning we're outta here and on our way south. It sure has been a short summer. Last Friday brought us some bad news though. Our winter workamper position down in Ocala, FL fell through. They called us to let us know that they plan on rebuilding part of the campground and will not be needing us. Oh well! That means we can do other things this fall and winter. The first leg of our journey will take us down to the Bear's Den Resort in Grove, OK where we'll spend up to a couple of weeks. Our route will take us through Madison, WI and Debuque, IA with a stopover at the Iowa I80 Truck Stop in Davenport, IA. This is the largest truck stop in the world! Our next stopover will be at the Wildwood Lot Owners Association in Steedman, MO. We're not a lot owner there but they do allow Coast to Coast Resort members access to it for $8 a night. From there we'll travel through Missouri's capital city of Jefferson City and past Lake Of The Ozarks, Springfield and Joplin, MO stopping at the Bear's Den in Grove, OK. From there we'll regroup and plan our next leg of our journey.

Going places that we've never been...
Seeing things that we'll probability never see again...
Gee I'll be glad to be back on the road again.

Next year summer home selected

Barbie and I took our last cruise of the season aboard the Shangri-La this morning as we cruised 29 miles north of Sheboygan to the small port of Two Rivers to put the Shangri-La in winter storage. We have decided that Seagull Marina and Campground in Two Rivers, WI will be our summer home next year as we can keep the Shangri-La in indoor storage for the summer season there to preform the remodelling task and other needed maintenance that we want to do.
