Postcard from Iowa

30-31 July 2010
(Clear Lake, IA)

Flood control a little west of La Crosse

We left Hixton, WI with threatening cloud cover and it only got worse. Sometime after La Crosse the heavens opened up and the rig got a bath. Would have been fine if it weren’t that the water hitting it was dirty: we were in the midst of some serious construction work.

Our stop this day was at Cedar Lake, IA for a one-niter. We stayed at Oakwood RV Park which had very easy pull thru sites. We’re close to 60′ when the trailer is connected, so if we didn’t have to go after diesel I could have stayed connected for the nite. It was $28/nite with the cash discount, otherwise it was $30/nite. Not bad. For whatever reason, Celia was happy to be gone from here… ???

One problem. The access road looks like a war zone. The big rigs have really torn it up. When we tried to find the park, however, got a little screwed up because Mr. Garmin’s directions were a little screwed up. We ended up arriving from the wrong direction which turned out to be the best direction… we missed all the pot holes. Well… until I drove out to fuel-up!

Tomorrow we’re off to Nebraska.

Celia and I are full-time RVers wintering (and now summering!) in Benson, AZ. The 2 bernese mountain dogs that initiated the name of this blog are gone but forever alive in our memory.
