If you live in Kansas, or are from Kansas, you may love it there. There must be nice beautiful places in Kansas but crossing the state on Interstate 70 is pretty boring and there’s not much to see. The most we have seen are farm fields and windmills. Both are important but not very interesting after the first hour or two.
Maybe someday, but not today, we’ll take time and find some scenic routes to follow and explore more of Kansas. Today, we’re in day two of travel to our next SOWER https://sowerministry.org/ project at Ethnos 360 in Roach, Missouri.https://ethnos360.org/ We left the Glen Eyrie https://gleneyrie.org/ project in Colorado Springs, Colorado yesterday.
On our way to Colorado Springs las month, it was a challenge finding overnight stays for our 38 foot motorhome pulling our jeep. When traveling through an area pulling a “toad”and staying only overnight we always look for pull-through sites so we don’t have to unhook the “toad”. In RV lingo, “toad” is the vehicle you are towing behind your RV.
On the way to Colorado Springs, we stayed in a Journey KOA which was OK but tight. After that, we stayed in two different state parks in Kansas. Upon arrival at the first one, they said they didn’t have any pull through sites, so we had to unhook the jeep and back in to the site. At the next Kansas state park, they said they had pull through sites, but even though we gave them the length of the motorhome and the car when we made the reservation, the site was too short and it was about a 90 degree right turn to get out of the site once we got in so again we had to unhook the jeep. And, on the road to get to our site, the trees were scraping the top and the sides of the motorhome.
AFter leaving Glen Eyrie yesterday morning, heading east on I-70, we stayed at a privately owned RV park in Russell, Kansas. We found it online and made the reservation about 10 days before our stay. I have to give a shout out to them and I’m posting a link to their website right here https://triplejrvpark.com/ . They’re about 1/2 mile off I-70. Their sites are long and flat. See the pictures I’ve posted below. The roads are wide enough to get in and out of the park. The park is clean and well manicured. There’s a very large dog park if you travel with your furry friends. And, the price was perfect for a quick one night stay.
We walked over to a nearby Pub and Pizzeria that was very nice and it was attached to a gas station and a clean convenience store.
Today, we stopped at our first Harvest Host/Boondockers Welcome site. It’s at the Peculiar Winery in Peculiar Missouri. Tomorrow Night, we’ll be at the Primitive Olde Crow and Winery in Clinton, Missouri. We’ll be boondocking at both sites. I’ll let you know how it goes in our next post. Until then…
