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.

Oconto, WI

We are currently parked at the Oconto Yacht Club in Oconto, WI. The idea of staying here at the yacht club for the summer was a great idea, but may not be very feasible. The next few days will tell. We still have our seasonal space reserved at Holtwood Campground here in Oconto.

I've already started making contacts with local people to help us with our renovation project on our boat, the Shangri-La.

Moberly, MO "The Magic City"

We have stopped for a couple of days staying at Thompson Campground, part of Rothwell Park, in Moberly, MO, to visit Barbie's nephew Wally.

Moberly is the product of an 1866 railroad auction. The Chariton and Randolph Railroad connected with the North Missouri Railroad Company here. With the coming of the Wabash Railroad Shops in 1873, Moberly seemed to spring from the prairie overnight, and was subsequently dubbed "The Magic City."

From here we'll leave on Tuesday morning on our last leg to Oconto, WI for the summer.

OKC Day 2

We got the services done today on the motorhome, all vehicle registrations updated for the year, and my Class-A CDL renewed for another 4 years. Oil and filter change on the motorhome engine and generator set us back $500. Tomorrow we take as much as we can out of our local storage, stock up at Sam's Club, have dinner with my sister, then head north early Saturday morning.

Oklahoma City, OK

We left Texarkana, TX/AR around 7:30 this morning stopping at the Rockwell RV Park in Oklahoma City. We'll be here until Saturday morning then to Moberley, MO for a couple of days. While in Oklahoma City, we are having full services done on the motorhome engine and generator at Cummins Southern Plains. Also while in the city, I have to renew my Class "A" Commercial Drivers License and vehicle registrations for both our pickups and the motorhome.

One of our followers asked me a question about Texarkana. "(Texarkana) Right on the (Texas/Arkansas) border. Who do they cheer for during football season?"

Update on Barbie

Barbie is doing much better today. The doctors want to keep her in the hospital through the weekend possibly releasing her on Monday. I brought in her computer for her today but she doesn't have any Internet access. But she has TV in the room and some games on her computer to occupy her time.
