Aug 28, 2013 - OTRA - IA - West Liberty

Onward and westward we go. On the road (I-80) at 10:23 (no big rush this morning since we’ve got a short traveling day) under beautiful clear skies. I like traveling west because the sun is at our back the whole way. Something we noticed during our travels…the corn and soybean fields get larger and larger the further west we go. There were some low green crops we didn’t recognize but Bob thinks they were broccoli…and maybe potatoes in some areas. Wish they’d put signs out so we’d know for sure! Same thing with all the big warehouses,...

Mar 31, 2013 - blowin' in the wind

We're glad that we got so many miles under our belts yesterday during benign driving conditions, because strong winds sprung up today. Keeping the tires between the white lines was a challenge at times. We hear that bitter cold is arriving here and at home and the winds must be generated by the contrast with the mild weather today. Although the dirt looks correct now - black, there are absolutely no signs of spring in the vegetation. We headed toward a campground less than ten miles from HWH. It got poor reviews on rvparkreviews.com, but it...

Rainy and humid in West Liberty, Iowa. Didn't need much covers on the bed and shorts were a good choice for wear. Hubert Hoover's Library ahd Muesum is in West Branch, Iowa.

His museum mwas interesting as it contained information on presidents from Washington up to current Bush. Info on children, ages when they were elected president. Some was things that probably wasn't...

Fogle's Dream Trip

Jun 11, 2007 - W. Liberty, Iowa Journey 2b

Today is just a quick, overnight stop. We are at the KOA in W. Liberty, Iowa. (I-80 Exit 259S, 500 yards south, on Garfield Avenue.) It's a clean KOA but not very big. It sits within eyesight of the interstate. There's not much there but the sign on the building claimed a restaurant "Mom's Kitchen" which was closed. There was however, a cute looking diner right next door . We took a walk over to check it out and after a closer look, decided to eat in our unit, instead. Goodness knows, we had plenty of food on board.
