First night we stayed at the KOA in Texarkana. It was HOT, way TOO HOT. It must have been way over a hundred. The dogs suffered, my wife suffered, and I suffered. AC couldn’t keep up. Miserable, but survived.
The next night we stayed at a KOA on I-55 in Missouri close to Hayti and Portageville. Somewhat cooler and actually enjoyed the stay and we all started to feel better.
I am now sitting in a KOA at Casey, Illinois on I-70. It is a lot cooler here and the KOA people got on our good side by giving us a couple of really delicious cookies. We are in a nice shady spot and all is well. Everything, so far, has performed just fine.
We are not in a hurry to get anywhere at any specific time, except for one. My wife asked me to drive slow this trip, and I am. I have set the cruise control at 57 mph, and what surprise. Did you know that the lanes on the interstate are dotted instead of blurred solid line? Well, if you drive slowly enough, they are. And another thing, the time it takes to get somewhere does not seem to be much different than when you drive 70 or so. I didn’t think that I could stand to drive that slowly on the interstates, but I actually enjoy it. Kind of relaxing, and can look around a lot more.
Well, it is about time to eat. Don’t want to miss that. You all have a great day now, you hear?
