Friday morning we weren’t in any hurry to get going, it was going to be a trip of only 139 miles. We were at the Oasis RV Park in South Haven, KS, you can see the park from the interstate exit. Now the GPS told me to turn right at the exit and even though I could see the park on the left I turned right and of course I should have turned left. I trusted the GPS, I will dig deeper into the directions from now on. Actually that is the first time it has been wrong in finding a RV park. The park is ok for an overnight stop but not long term, showers and laundry room are the only amenities and nothing else. So we left about 9:30, I don’t like going through large towns except during the middle of the day. We did opt to run the toll way, $3.75 for the 40 mile trip. There was some construction in Wichita but other than that we had a good ride.
We arrived at the KOA in Salina, KS about 12:40 pm, got to our site and set up. We drove into Salina, it seemed that all the businesses were located on ninth street, the street we were on, this was later verified by the campground host. Salina isn’t a very big town, 47,707 but it does have some old homes. If you are interested, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salina,_Kansas#History, this link gives a nice history of the town. I didn’t realize it had an air force base here back in the fifties and sixties. Anyway we will be here until tomorrow Sunday, when we continue our trek north to Smith Center, KS, then on to Omaha.
Because of the great Southern cooking I have been eating I am forced to curtail my culinary exploits and eat at home more frugally. So those of you who have commented about the amount of food news in the blog will be disappointed. Although last night we had pizza, the park here cooks Hunt’s pizza and it was very good. Ok that is the last of the food comments. Unless something good comes up.
