Today, One year ago we made it to Onawa, Iowa and stayed at the On-Ur-Wa RV park. This was a pretty good RV park. It had a laundry mat which is was great, by this time we were in desperate need clean clothes and sheets.
We have come a long way since our arrival. I think back to that first trip north to Alaska; the adventures and long days of driving we had to endure. The stress of an overloaded school bus carrying an overloaded 28 foot enclosed trailer going 50 mph and 10 mph up mountains and hills. That was just Dad; I was behind him in Spike towing a 36 foot gooseneck travel trailer. For all who have just started reading Spike is our big dually diesel 3500 Ram Bully Edition pick up. He’s big, even comes with its own jake brake, which I had to use many times in the mountains. Open highways and roads were a piece of cake until we had to drive through large cities with tons of traffic. Very nerve racking and very scary.
Here are the pics I originally took on Sept. 7, 2017 in Iowa.
This year has just flown by.
