We left Cloverdale, IN on a rainy Saturday and drove less than 20 miles before re-discovering sunshine. The new GPS was intent on sending us down small, narrow country roads to get to I-70 but Nui ignored her and eventually she settled down and sent us on our way to our new destination. There was only one short moment of confusion when the GPS got the exit wrong and we missed the turn onto I-55 and had to detour through downtown St. Louis. No big deal - it turned out that the detour saved us a lot of time since we avoided a huge traffic jam at the I-55 turn-off.
A pleasant 4-hour drive down excellent roads led us to our next destination, the Ladybug RV Resort in Cuba! This is a great little park and the owners are very friendly and accommodating. We stayed overnight and left the next day for Springfield, MO. Imagine our delight, therefore, when we discovered that from Cuba, we were going to Paris and then Lebanon! All that international travel from the comfort of the Beast and in only 3 hours. We are now at the Springfield, MO KOA (not the Springfield, IL KOA as previously booked!) and we're going cave-touring this afternoon. We're heading out tomorrow for the Precious Moments Chapel (I know - Nui will probably burst into flame) and then on Thursday we're heading for Branson and a Live version of the Price is Right. Should be a fun couple of days!
