TOTAL MILES DRIVEN.........3594
Backing up to Greentop, Missouri because it was an interesting little town. Sherry and I joked about this is what Park Falls was supposed to look like according to the world of Dar. LOL. This is our view from the picture window While at the RV park at Greentop.
Now we got another laugh here. There are NO rail road tracks. They are long since gone. (We walked after dark, camera is not too good at night)
I worked a couple miles South of here at the 790th RAdar Squadron, a SAGE site , while in the USAF. We lived about nine miles South of here. This was a great duty station one of the best we ever had.
This time in Moberly, we learned something we didn't know when we lived here in the early 1960's. This is where General of the Army, Omar Bradley called home. More unique, he was born a few farms east of where our friends the Conrads lived. Bradley was a gentleman, he was called the Soldier's General.
Now we are up todate on our trip. We are now here in St. Joseph. An interesting place in History. Captains Lewis and Clark passed this point when they started their famous expedition West, looking for a water route to the West Coast. St. Joseph is famous in that this is the point they returned to after the expedition was completed.
But what us wannabe cowboys should know about St. Joseph is that is was the home of the famous Pony Express. This is where the boys started their 1900+ mile run West. Below is the National monument to those hearty and fearless 'boys' who were, THE PONY EXPRESS.
Now here we are at the AOK RV park between St. Joe and Savannah. Glenda called Sherry and she is heading to Missouri from Florida and bringing some Mangos' So we are going to wait. We might get in some site seeing and play tourist.
