It is truly a favorite To have views like this! So glad it was preserved. The family car wash…the van also got oil change, tires rotated and balanced as well as the starter switch recall. In Grand Junction, it had a new Auto Transfer Switch installed so we can now use shore power. Nice to make sure the warranty work gets taken care of in a timely manner. An evening with friends. It is difficult to make time for everything but we have tried to organize a few quality visits as all of our friends are important to us! After a night with my other nephew’s family in Kansas, we came across the geographical center of the contiguous states near Lebanon. This is the actual spot but a ranger told us it is really about 200′ from here in the corn field. Close enough for me. We homesteaded in Beatrice and then headed to the state capitol of Nebraska – gorgeous building Sterling J Morton was the author of Arbor Day and there is the beautiful Steinhart park next to his historic home in Nebraska City. We thought we would lunch along the Missouri River and found this replica of the Louis and Clark keel boat (the one made for the IMAX movie) Look Meriwether! So interesting to contemplate their journey. This makes our Travato look spacious – and definitely not as much work. Really nice to visit family along the way. Such gracious hospitality!
