I drove about 180 miles today to McPherson, KS, and will get to Chanute tomorrow afternoon. I reserved a room at a motel (got a weekly rate) and found they can accommodate my rig in their parking lot until Monday morning. That will make it easier to transfer some of my stuff to the motel room. I hope the place doesn’t have inside corridors!
I took US 81 south from York, Nebraska, which was divided most of the way. There was hardly any traffic on it and I much prefer a road like that to an interstate. Then in Salina Kansas it becomes interstate, but it still isn’t heavily traveled. I will go through Wichita tomorrow and turn east to Chanute.
I’m staying in a Horse/RV Park outside of McPherson. There aren’t many spaces filled, and they are all full hookups plus much wider than many parks. I’m glad I came on, although it was tempting to stay at the KOA. I’m ready to stay put for a few days, but someone needs to remind me of that when I get tired of living out of a motel room!
I am trying to decide whether I should keep my desktop computer with me at the motel. I can’t get into the chat room on the laptop because the operating system I have doesn’t have Java, or at least I can’t figure out what version to download and how to download it. I’ve written my niece in NY to bring her Mac Book out when I am there – I would like to see for myself whether or not I could deal with something so different. She swears by the Mac and says I will want to steal hers once I check it out!
What a journey this is turning out to be. I thought I’d be in South Dakota or Minnesota by now, never dreaming I’d be in Kansas! At least Toto (Lady) doesn’t mind where we are.
