We are in Pittsburg! Missouri that is...we are in a CoE park backed up to a great view of the river. We will be here 2 nights and then move on to Kansas. 460 miles today, but pretty good roads in Missouri. I recommend US60 from Sikesville west.

Hurricane Creek

We hit an unexpected cool front here in Cadiz, KY. The overnight low was 59 degrees! Great sleeping weather. Yesterday we got up early and drove over to Land Between the Lakes. If you are heading this way the bridges from the east and west are VERY narrow. I would not pull my trailer across them. The good news is they are being replaced. We wanted to go see the Bison and Elk Prairie. This is a driving tour of a large fenced off area where "wild" Elk and Bison live. $5 per vehicle gets you into the exhibit. We did not see any Bison, but we did find 2 male Elks lying in the grass up on a hill. We also saw a number of turkeys. The plan is to pack up leave here tomorrow. We will cross the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. We'll cross the Ohio on I24 and the Mississippi at Cape Girardeau, MO. Little did we know that these elk would be the only ones we saw in 2015!

House is sold!

We left the TCPC Airstream Park near Crossville, TN this morning and are currently set up at a CoE campground near Cadiz, Ky called Hurricane Creek. We will be here until Monday. Oh and BTW, the papers are all signed on the house and we are just waiting for confirmation of the wired proceeds. Yay.

We left Huntsville this morning and along with Tom and Robin, we headed north to TCPC which is an Airstream only park located south of Crossville, TN. We will remain here until we close on the house. Yes, the second closing date came and went with no closing. Hopefully, they will get it done this week. TCPC is an Airstream only park located near Crossville, TN. Known for cooler temps in the summer, it is about 200 sites owned by individuals all have some form or another of Airstreams. You don't own the land, but you own the right to use the facilities and your site. Nice location, but we decided it wasn't for us.

Monte Sano State Park

Our time at Isaacs Creek Campground is up and we have moved north to Monte Sano State Park near Huntsville, Al. We will be here until Sunday. We are meeting some friends from Mobile and other areas for a mini Airstream get together. BTW, our closing us set for Friday at 11 am. The title company will email our docs and we will print them out and overnight them back. This saga should be over soon!

No joy, no closing...

So, the closing did not happen yesterday. The buyers loan processing is still under way. We left Meaher State Park this morning for our service appointment in Gulfport. They drove it back and got right on it. We were out of there in an hour. We had planned to stay at Gulf Islands National Park in Ocean Springs, Ms but the campground is small, cramped and very full. We drove right back out. We stopped for fuel and a fellow fueler recommended Shepard State Park in Gautier (go-shay) for you yanks. We have a real nice, shady, private spot backed up to a gator filled bayou (by-you). We will hide out here until Saturday at least. Here's the view of the backyard.
