September 9, 2016 - Robertsville State Park, Robertsville, MO
I intended to take pictures of our campsite this morning, however it started raining sometime last night and was still raining this morning. The weather forecast was calling for rain when I checked it before going to bed and it sounded like it might be heavy so we pulled our kitchen and dining slides in and just left the bedroom slide out for the night. We have quite a few trees around us and rather than Dean have to check all the slides in the morning we could at least keep it to a minimum. We did get a short lull in the rain for awhile after we got up and was able to get most of the outside stuff done before it started raining really hard. Dean finally dug around and found a poncho we had brought with us that he could use to get back out and finish getting things done. Without it he would have been drenched.
Since the slides were in and we could not get to the living area to set, we had coffee in bed this morning while we listened to the news. Dean decided he would try to find a place to stop around Lebanon to get some breakfast and we finally pulled out of our site here at 8:20a. Fortunately Dean had scoped out a Cracker Barrel and it just happened to be located across the street from a school ballfield where they had a large parking lot. That worked out well for parking Bentley in. Breakfast was really good this morning - maybe because we were pretty hungry by the time we arrived.
It quit raining on us not too long after we left the State Park except for just a few sprinkles here and there and never rained on us again after we left the Cracker Barrel. Our ride home was pretty smooth. Just outside of Rolla we were held up in traffic for about 30 minutes due to an accident on I-44. When we finally drove by it, we only saw one car which they were getting ready to load on a wrecker. The car was in pretty bad shape. I pray whether it was just the one vehicle or multiple ones that no one was seriously injured.
It seemed like in no time we were passing through Springfield, Joplin and finally pulling into Oswego. It's good to be home. We had such a great time on this trip.
