Greetings from Iowa
We're putting another state on our map this morning! We have 400 miles to go today to be in Plymouth Wisconsin by our promised time. That will be a record for us. Twice as much as normal. We usually consider 200 a full day, a very full day. So, instead of our normal noontime departure we figured on 8am. It's 7:30 now and everyone else is already gone! We found a very nice park right off Interstate 80 in Kellogg, Iowa. $11/night! and attached to the service station with a cafe "Iowa's Best Burger Cafe". It was good! Especially the onion. Here's what Iowa cornfields look like in the springtime! Gotta Go. We will gas up at this station first ... with the 10cent discount for camping here, we'll pay 1.87. That's the lowest we've seen in 8 months. They use Ethanol here ... surprise,surprise!
