Into Kansas

Finn County Park
La Gygne,  KS

We left Iowa yesterday morning heading south on I35 into


Through Kansas City and picked up Route 69 south into:


This park is but a few miles from Route 69 but back a long winding road.


Signs said to register at the Marina.  We drove around until we found the Marina.  However, the office is closed Monday and Tuesday.    The sign said $12.00 for an electric site, $13.00 electric and water and $14.00 for full hooks ups.   Thinking we've splurge for the FHU.

We've only had full hook ups for a few days in the last 4 months.   Now to find the full hook ups.   There are at least 100 sites spread out all over the area.   But only 8 or 9 full hook ups which someone standing in front of their site directed us to.  Only one was not occupied.   We'll take it and find someone in the morning to settle up.   Which we did.   Decided to stay here until Sunday.


As we were setting set up we had a visitor come to watch.



I guess we were so interesting that this morning she bought along a friend.


Needing fuel and a WalMart stop, we drove 25 miles to the nearest WalMart this morning to Butler, MO.     WOW!   Don't want to mess with these people.


Weather is beautiful.   A few days to relax and explore the area.    We see there is a National Wildlife Refuge about 10 miles away.   That's for tomorrow.

Lol, we recognized that statue. It's the one on the guy's car lot from "God, Guns, and Automobiles" in Butler, MO. Stupid reality show on History channel.
