Pulled out of our driveway this morning around 7 am on the start of our “Adventure Before Dementia…Westward Ho”tour. The temperature was 39 degrees. Nine hours and 500 miles later we found ourselves in summer and 81 degrees. We made it to St Paul without incident. I tried my hand at driving and felt fairly comfortable until I pulled into a gas station. I turned the truck and trailer into a parking area and narrowly (and I mean narrowly) missed taking out some mirrors on a school bus! Ugh! Fortunately it was a miss.
By the way, we had to stop for gas three times during our 500 miles today…..that’s averaging about 10 miles to the gallon….
This guy might be the campground host at the St. Paul East RV park. He came over to check us out.
The plan is to have breakfast with the Schmoeckels Friday morning and then continue on.
