    We use to publish a monthly newsletter but decided to step up and do a blog instead. Just like our newsletter we will update this "newsletter" about once a month.
    Each month we bring you news from our little town of Coupeville, WA and happenings around the island we live on.
    We hope you enjoy our blog and we'd encourage you to sign up for email notification since it doesn't update all that frequently.

Day 38 – Driving Rain

Yesterday we drove through some driving rain, how appropriate is that, to get to Louisburg, Kansas.

Fortunately it let up by the time we got to Rutlader Outpost RV Park and Middle Creek Theater to set up camp.

No that picture is not of our camp, our trailer is a little more modern than that 😉 While we had reservations for our site we don’t believe it was really necessary.

It’s a nice park and the people here are very nice. The have a large country music theater attached to the office and there was a big crowd attending the show. The lady thought about 200-300 people showed up. We really aren’t that crazy about country music so passed.

We did walk around a little bit to check things out. We found that they have created the Kansas Country Music Hall of Fame here. It looked like maybe they had twenty inductees so far. While walking around the theater we noticed this interesting collection of items. How about a grouping of a cowboy, American flag, an Indian and a Christmas tree in July?

For dinner we grilled buffalo burgers that we had bought in Shipshwana, Indiana cooked on the BBQ . They were excellent!

There are storm clouds all around us but no rain so far.

Oh oh, red in the morning sailor take warning! This morning at 6:30 it’s 75 degrees F and 91% humidity, talk about a wet blanket!

After just one night in Kansas we’re on to Nebraska. Nothing against Kansas, in fact Ken spent a number of years in Wichita playing with The Serfs, a rock and roll band that performed in many Kansas towns in the late 1960’s. We just have a schedule to keep and need to keep going.

  1. Kansas also offers some beautiful sunsets because there is often plenty of dust in the air. beware the yellow sky though for that whole area including Nebraska. youll know it, everything including the sidewalks will have a yellow tint.
    if you going to Nebraska does that mean you skiping Colo. I guess the mountains would be tough in the RV and eastern Colo looks pretty much like most of kansas lol
    I hope one day I am able to do the same thing you are!
