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.

Well we didn't get the 8" of snow here in Oconto as they were predicting like they got in the Green Bay area, but at least we're up here and hopefully it will start warming up before long.

Back in Oconto, Wisconsin

We made it back to Oconto today getting here around 5:30 this afternoon. We left Kellogg, IA around 8:00 this morning and drove the last 434 miles in 9 hours driving time. As soon as we get here we find that there's a winter storm warning out for Tuesday and Wednesday expecting around 8" of snow here. At least I don't have to drive in it. We'll be here until the end of October.

From the time we left Oconto last year, we drove the motorhome 3479 miles, used 453.465 gallons of fuel, costing $1629.45, which averages out to 7.67 MPG, $3.593 per gallon, $0.468 per mile driven. We spent $3244.12 staying in RV Parks this past winter.

High winds

We were planning on leaving out this morning continuing our trek to Wisconsin for the summer but opted to stay put here in Oklahoma City for another day due to the high winds here in Oklahoma and Kansas. That will give us another day to enjoy the indoor hot tub here at the RV park. It is 1025 miles from Oklahoma City to Oconto that will take us 3 to 4 days to drive.

Gainesville, TX

We left the Welcome Center around 7:30 this morning getting as far as Gainesville, Texas where we stopped for the night at the Gainesville Outlet Shops RV Park. This outlet mall used to be worth driving down from Oklahoma City but not anymore. Most of the stores have closed over the years. We'll be in Oklahoma City tomorrow for about a week.

Blow Out

We were getting ready to leave Lake Arthur this morning when I found that my inside right rear dual tire was flat and wouldn't hold air. On the way here last Friday, I heard a noise and pulled over on the side of the highway but didn't see anything so I kept going.

Well I called our road service and they found someone about 40 miles from us who could bring us a new tire and put it on the motorhome. Total price for a new tire was $503.17.

Since it was already after noon by the time the repairs were completed, we opted to spend one more night and will leave out tomorrow morning on our trip to Oklahoma City.
