We left Olathe, Kansas around 9:15 this morning with cloudy skies, but no rain. Went right past Kansas City. Glad it was a Sunday morning. Traffic was not bad at all.
We drove up I-35 and over the Missouri River till we hit hwy 36 at Cameron, Missouri.
We drove through North Kansas City, where I went to high school. Of course, after 50 years, the only thing I could remember were a few of the street names. I doubt if I could find my old neighborhood. Things have grown quite a bit.
Drove straight across Missouri on hwy 36, a four lane highway with no traffic until it connected to I-72 at the Ilinois border. I must say that was a nice highway. Beats going I-70 to I-55 by a long shot.
Storm clouds were brewing as we crossed into Missouri, but it never rained.
We connected with I-55 at Springfield, sixty miles south of Bloomington. After seven hours of driving we are home. It feels so good to be home in a large house and hot water.
We left home on December 30, 2015 and returned home on March 20, 2016 for a total of 82 days. We traveled 4,345 miles in the motorhome during that time and our total costs for the journey was $3,535. That averages to $43.11 a day or $1,178.33 a month for three months.
I have enjoyed doing this blog and I hope I have brought some enjoyment to those that read my blog over the past three months. I will not be doing a daily blog while at home.
See you later.
