On the road again

We left Troy, Ohio on Tuesday and stopped at our friend Barbara's house for an evening. On Wednesday we headed west. We stopped at Terre Haute, In for the night. Louise has a niece that lives there, so we got to visit her and her husband for a while. Off again to Missouri and big arch. We took the tram to top, pretty cool. It's a long way up there!! After the arch we were off to Meramec Caverns where we are spending the night. Tomorrow we will take the cave tour. From there I think we will go to Springfield to the big Bass Pro Shop.

That's it for now

Back in Troy

We are back in Troy, Ohio for a couple of days. We went the rv rally in Van Wert, Ohio this past week. We had a real good time. Went to a lot of classes on rv care and a couple on traveling the country. Found out a lot about work camping. Went to a class on working for the U S Park Service and a class on going to Alaska. The night time entertainment was pretty good. We really enjoyed ourselves.
Left Van Wert on Friday to go back to Troy for the blacksmith convention. I got to see a lot of my old friends from my smithing days. I watched several of the demonstrators and kind of got the urge to do some smithing, but no place to put the forge in the

We will leave Troy by Wednesday morning. We are heading back to Texas for my doctors appointment. Not sure how we will go yet. Thinking of going back through Missouri. Maybe stopping at Branson. We will let everybody know when we know.

That's it for know

Troy, Ohio

We're back in Troy for a couple of weeks. At this time we are parked in the driveway of our friend Bob. We were going move to our daughter's, but the yard was too soft from the rain. Bob was kind enough to let us stay at his house and provided us with water and electric. It's great to have good friends. This week we are taking care of our grandbaby during the day. Ain't she a cutie !!!! She will be 2 on the 11th of September. She's having her birthday party on Saturday.

We will be going to the Escapees rv rally in Van Wert, Oh. on the 17th thru the 22nd. Then it's back to Troy to the Southern Ohio Forge and Anvil annual blacksmithing convention. After that we will be off again. Planning on stopping by Louise's brother Ed's house then moving through Missouri on our way back to Texas. We have doctors appointments on Oct. 11. I have to have my scans done to make sure they got the cancer out. That done, we are off to Georgia for a while.
That's it or now
