Friday, July, 23rd Ozark, MO to Garnett, KS

We were up and on the road fairly early today. We only have about 4-1/2 hours to go on this last leg of our trip home. The trip was uneventful with only a couple of stops for fuel. Shadow took it all in stride and just rolled over and took a nap…lol


We took  state highway 14 to hwy 160 to Springfield, MO and to I-44 west to hwy96 to Carthage, MO.


Then we turned north on Hwy 71 to Nevada, Mo.





At Nevada, we got on Hwy 54 west through Fort Scott, KS.


We even saw a Tin Man in front of this Store


We passed this RV Park…Mac checked it out a few months ago and spoke to the owner. He only has about 10 –12 sites but he has made it very nice and there is also a lake.





We took Hwy 3 at Bronson, KS because Mac didn’t want to follow a couple of trucks hauling some huge I-Beams. From there we turned west on Hwy 31 to Hwy 59 in to Garnett…whew..



We made it to the RV Park about 2:00 and got set up in our old site.




As I have said before, this park doesn’t have the “it” factor…no amenities…but for us it is perfect. The sites are nice with a small grass front yard, picnic table, and grill. The people are very friendly, and with Passport America it only costs us $12.50 per day +tax.

After getting set up we were off to the house to get started…we worked for about 2 hours. The house will be completely empty in a couple of days. We made arrangements to have the carpet cleaned on the 30th. We also are going to have someone come in and clean it from top to bottom because I just won’t have the time to get it done.

I think that catches me up to the weekend, and now I will only post a couple of times a week since we will be doing the same thing everyday…lol

Welcome home! I bet it's nice to get back. I like that feeling, too - that "ahhhh" sensation of home. I wonder if I'll miss that once "home" is our trailer? That is, unless we decide to get a bricks and mortar place somewhere else. Only time will tell.

See, there is an end and it will be soon! We had our house cleaned by someone before we put it on the market too. I was just to exhausted after clearing it out.
Good luck!!!!!! and Hugs (( ))!

I cleaned the house myself and IF I had it to do over I would also hire someone to clean it. It was just too much with all that was going on and all the last minute things to get rid of (the junk that just seems to keep coming out of the woodwork).
Good luck and pace yourself!!

It's great to see you made it. Good luck on all that's left to do and not worry about it any more. See you soon.
