Arrived in Branson - finally!

It was a loooooonnngg day yesterday! There is no direct highway route from Sikeston, MO to Branson, MO. It was all US and state routes - which we do like because they are much more scenic than traveling on the freeway. However, this particular route (US 160 West) was a curvy, roller coaster road. And after a couple hundred miles of it, we were tired. I guess I should say, Randy was tired - I just kinda sit there, reading and watching the GPS. But, it was a beautiful day to travel, weather-wise, so we are grateful for that.

We got to Branson about 1:30/2:00 CDT. Yes, we are now in Central time. Hard to remember that sometimes. We'll be in Central until we get to Atlanta, then it's back to "real" time! :)

We are staying in an Escapees Rainbow park. And our friends, Roy & Barb are here. We were able to get the site right next to them. It's great to be with them again and catch up with all they've been doing. They traveled across the northwest this past summer and have some great stories to share. They were also so kind to us - they had dinner ready for us last night! I decided that was such a nice thing to have upon arrival that I think every campground should do that for us - don't you??? We can just call ahead and give an ETA and then someone at the park can make us dinner. I like that idea! But, as my lovely daughter told me, "Good luck with that!" hehehehe

Today is a down day - we're going to try, once again, to get our internet satellite working. If it doesn't this time, I'm done!!! Plus, we need to go to the bank, figure out what shows we want to see and generally get a feel for the area. Really looking forward to sitting still for the next couple of weeks.

That's it for now. Until the next time . . . take care of each other!
