We pulled out of Two Rivers Campground in Nashville, TN at 10:14 this morning. We traveled through several states today, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois and Missouri and we only drove 238 miles.

|The two pictures above are of the Paducah, KY Rest Area. I'm not sure what this property was originally but it is a beautiful property.|

We crossed the Tennessee, Ohio and Mississippi Rivers - large bodies of water.

It was a pretty easy drive. We arrived and set up at Hinton RV Park in Sikeston, MO about 3:00 p.m. The skies were getting pretty dark and they were calling for some pretty heavy rain, but no serious weather threats were forecast.
As far as an RV park goes, it's okay as an overnight stop, and it had full hook-ups. While they had wi-fi, we could never connect, however, the Cable hookup was good. We had a great Verizon signal here. Our site was fairly level. The sites were quite close but clean.
It was just down the road from Lambert's (Home of the Thrown Rolls) - yep, just like the one in Ozark that we all love so much!
And right next door were the Original Fried Pies and yes, we had to try them out. They were pretty good and they were still pretty warm when we had them after dinner. I couldn't eat but a few bites and saved mine for later. When I ate it a couple of days later it had been in the refrigerator and it was much better!
The food at Lambert's was delicious and we left more than stuffed. I talked to Misti a short time before we ate and she made a remark about their chicken fried steak. Well, I could not get that off my mind and of course, I had to have it. It was delicious, along with the fried okra, fried potatoes and those wonderful rolls and sweet tea. Yummmy!
Thursday, March 24, 2016 - Mountain View, MO
We didn't leave until 10:54 this morning due to the rain. We prefer not to put the slides in when it is raining so much. We only traveled 145 miles today but boy did the weather change. It's still been somewhat warm but it was COLD when we arrived in Mountain View about 2:00 p.m. It was cloudy and windy. We were glad to get everything set up and inside as soon as possible.
We might have been the only traveling RV in the park. It was mostly empty except for a few workcampers. The Ozark Mountain Springs RV Park hosts a Bluegrass Jamboree that seems to have grown and draws a number of bluegrass fans. They invited us to return for the Jamboree. Their first weekend was coming up the first weekend in April.
The park itself was fine, but it would have been very close quarters had the park been full. There was no wi-fi at the site, however we could have gone to the office/laundromat area, but it was too cold and windy to walk over. We had a pull-through, full hookup site that was pretty level. We would return here and might even enjoy the bluegrass music.
We watched TV after I warmed up some soup for dinner. We are tired after driving the past two days. While we do not mind the travel we prefer to have at least 2 days in between drives.
Friday, March 25, 2016 - HOME - Oswego, KS
We left Ozark Mountain Springs RV Park shortly before 9:00 this morning and headed home to Oswego. We had a nice easy drive. We saw this beautiful tree in a pasture soon after we left the RV Park.
|It was a beautiful drive in the Ozarks this morning.|
We arrived home around 1:00. Stay tuned for our next trip!
