After a week volunteering at Oak Park Retreat Center we continued our trip north, following the pollen and dandelions as spring led the way. From Perkins, Oklahoma to Bob’s sister’s farm in southern Nebraska, it is an easy 2-day drive. Friday, the 14th, we had a very strong tailwind that blew us north into Kansas. We stopped for the night at a Corps of Engineers park on the Marion Reservoir near Marion, Kansas. The only problem is that the wind didn’t stop, but kept on blowing at 30 to 40 mph all night long; so intense that we kept our living room slides in all night.
Saturday the wind was not as strong, but continued from the south and helped us roll into Nebraska. When we stopped here last year the weather was very stormy, but this year was quite nice. We attended Easter services with Bill and Mary and had Sunday dinner with them as well.
After a pleasant Monday of laundry and shopping with Mary, we hit the road again, this time to Sioux Falls. This city is officially our legal home, so we plan to spend some time here and get to know it better.
