Yesterday we were sipping our coffee planning on what to do since we had two days left in Kearney.  There were 4 or 5 things we hadn't seen yet.  I mentioned to Bill that we weren't in a hurry because we weren't due to be at Pine Grove RV Park until the 23rd.  Bill looked at his watch and said tomorrow is the 23rd.  We ended up scurrying out the door with our dirty laundry for a laundromat, to fuel up the truck, and looking for a barber shop that wasn't closed. Didn't find one.  We stopped at the local grocery store  before heading home in time to get the grill going for dinner.  

About 3 am a terrible wind and rain came through the area. 
We ended up with not the best nights sleep but got up early anyway.  We were on the road by 9 am.

 One last trip under the archway.  I could do that again next time we're in the area.

Bill did the driving today, but I offered to drive.

As soon as we were parked we were greeted by Ron and Paul, the wagon masters.  This is the friendliest group we've ever been around.

Ron told us that they were cooking dinner.  I asked what I could bring and he said nothing.  They've been doing this
for the early bird people the last couple of years.

 These were Ron's big balls.

Dinner included Ron's special ribs, beans, potatoes, rolls, cucumber salad, jello salad, and genuine Nebraska corn on the cob. It was delicious!

I think there were over 20 people for dinner and the rally doesn't start until tomorrow.

Les produced some yellow ropes and asked for a couple of volunteers for a rope trip.  Paul and Ron agreed to be the guinea pigs. He "handcuffed" the two of them together and told them to get out of it without removing the ropes from their wrists.  They were really in some contortions.    We were all laughing so hard I didn't get very good picture. Even funnier after they finally gave up, Les couldn't remember right off the way to get out of them.  

Did I mention that besides the great food this group also managed to have perfect weather?

 It was a beautiful evening and we even had a July Nebraska style campfire.  It was getting cool and reluctantly we we inside.

We're so looking forward to tomorrow when the rally begins. 

 My gnat trip is working.  

Turtle Safely..........


  1. See how easy it is to get the days all mixed up and forgotten? Too funny. Now this sounds like a really great group to get together with. Good news about the gnat trap.

  2. So, tell me again how to trap gnats? And what was that rope tie-up all about? Looks like you're having fun!
