Walmart, Joplin, Missouri
We were up with the birds on Wednesday, Mar. 18th. We were drinking our brews at 6:30 and in to the Walmart at 7. That is definitely the time to go with maybe only 20 people inside aside from staff. We got our ground beef and some chicken for the freezer and scooted out. Quickest shopping ever! Ken and Kim were heading in as we returned. With quick wash ups, I made a sandwich for our lunch and we all pulled out before 8:30.
|Driving into the fog once more|
|And eventually, we saw the blue sky and sunshine|
|How many of us have driven under this awesome looking Skydance bridge ?|
The structure was inspired by OK's state bird, the scissor-tailed flycatcher
How cool is that!?
|It's hard to not notice these huge planes along the highway|
|Part of the Airforce Bomber Base|
|You can see the fog has returned somewhat|
|My only collage today but it is an interesting one|
We understand the implications from low fuel prices
BUT we are still happy to save all we can on this trip home
|Our rest area lunch stop was open and very spacious|
|So many familiar things along the interstate|
|Lots of water in the area|
|Many fields of grass fed cattle|
which is nicer to see than those cattle farms we've also seen
|It is nice to see a lot of trees in blossom too|
|Grand Lake State Park|
|The day got better again|
|A really nice casino Temporarily Closed|
|Some nice homes off the highway on a frontage road|
We ate by 7:15 and had dishes done and sandwiches for tomorrow made by 7:45. I sat to work on my posting but I was tired and distracted. I gathered the receipts and made a list of our expenditures that needed to be claimed at the border. Then I didn't feel like finishing my blog. This was another good travel day and although we lost each other for a while, we miraculously ended up at the same place!
