Homeward Bound: Leg 2

Trixie ran out of TP this morning.


Packed up, fueled up and left Nebraska City. We then headed east, back into Iowa, and then turned northward onto I-29.

We stopped at Camping World in Council Bluffs, IA, to replace the GPS tablet that I damaged. It had fallen to the floor once too many times, cracking the touchscreen.


Then, we did some shopping at a mall in Council Bluffs, as well as got lunch.

We got back onto I-29 North and made it to North Sioux City, South Dakota. We settled into a site at a KOA. This is Marla’s first visit to South Dakota and my second.

Tomorrow, we will journey to Pipestone National Monument in Minnesota. This will be our first visit to Minnesota.

RVing: First Time Out

My wife, and our three dogs, had their first overnight trip in our motor home. We took a trip to Cozy Creek Campground, near Tunkhannock, PA, and stayed two nights. Our two Scotties and Westie adapted well to travel and we’re very eager to explore when we took them on walks. They also enjoyed looking outside from their perch on the dash board. They did get agitated when they spotted chipmunks and squirrels as well as other dogs. We’ll have to work on that during training. 

I had already made two shakedown overnight trips on my own, prior to this one, and I am getting more proficient with the RV’s systems. I’ve worked out most of the bugs, but I still have a couple of things to try out and resolve.
