still some snow on the mountains.
We passed through the pass and came to a more open area that was closer to what I expected Kansas to look like. We soon came to Kansas and yes, lots of open prairie land, no hills or mountains in sight. No tornado, TOTO, I mean Savannah. However there was wind. Strong Winds!! We only had less than an hour from our destination in Kansas but when we saw an overturned truck on the side of the road, we thought about stopping sooner. Then we stopped for diesel and the guy working the counter said there were several overturned trucks and also a rv. Yikes, we only drove about a block, saw an Arbys with a big lot next door with a fifth wheel sitting in it. We pulled in and parked. the guy in the fifth wheel came over and said he too was going to wait out the wind. We went over to Arbys to get sandwiches for dinner and settled in for the night. Luckily the next morning was not too windy and we made our way to Eisenhower State Park. We had some problems getting there, accidentally going the wrong way and heading up on a toll road. We definitely have a new gps at the top of our list to buy soon. We finally found the road to the State Park, but on the way, saw a nice camping area, called Outlet campground, which was a Corp of Engineer Park. A pretty park right on the water and with our old people pass, only $10. for full hookups. Can't beat that. We are happy campers.
