Iowa, Minnosota, North Dakota

We have covered lots of territory since my last post. We spent a few days at the factory getting some work done on the motorhome. While there we met some really neat folks. Mom and Dad also had some work done on their rig also. Before we got to the factory we spent a few days in an Iowa campground so Gary could catch his fish in Iowa. He managed to do so. We also took a ride through some of the Amish country. Mom and dad left us and went on to Missouri. Gary and I headed for Minnosota. We spent a night in the hometown of Sinclair Lewis. Great campground. From there we went to the Gold Eagle Vacationland campground in Perham, Mn. Met some more great people. Forrest even invited Gary to fish with him on his boat and they were successfull enough for us to have a fishfry. Gary and I are currently in Jamestown, North Dakota. We are camped close to Frontier town and toured that today. We also went to the Buffalo Museum.

Shady Lakes Campground, New Windsor, Illinois

We stayed two nights at this campground so Gary could catch his fish in Illinois. He managed to catch lots of bluegill in the day and half we were there. Wonderful campground. People are very friendly.

Sunset the first night we were there.

Cloud 9 Ranch, Caulfield, Mo

We spent 12 days at Cloud 9 Ranch in Caulfield, Mo. It is our home park for Coast to Coast. It has 6 campgrounds to choose from. We usually camp at Wilder which is by the springs. Cloud 9 is a haven for those who like to ride ATVs. It has over 60 some miles for people to ride on. Gary caught lots of fish. We were able to have 2 fishfries. It was great to visit with some of the people we met last year. Mom and dad met us at Cloud 9. We were sure happy to see them.
