December 28/12 - We Are Now In Joplin MO

We are now in Joplin, Missouri, about 8 miles east of the Oklahoma border. Today was overcast all day, with a bit of snow west of Saint Louis and again at Springfield, but thankfully nothing too bad. Once we got to Effingham IL there was no sign of snow on the ground, and even though it was snowing at Springfield there was just a trace on the ground there. The drive was good with little traffic and thankfully Saint Louis was a breeze.

We are at the Drury Inn & Suites, a chain that Ginny & Gil recommended. For $70/night we have a really nice room and we got tickets for 3 free drinks each, plus dinner and breakfast. Dinner was a buffet with salad, cream of broccoli soup, penne pasta, meatballs, hot dogs and all kinds of chips and dips - can't go wrong! A couple from just south of Chicago asked us to join them for dinner as it was really busy, so we had a great chat, they have their RV with them but are motelling it on their way to San Antonio for the winter.

Will be an early night as for some reason I find travelling very tiring. How can that be when I just sit in the truck all day!

And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to another great day tomorrow.
