Laramie, Wy to Lincoln, Nebraska and now we're in Branson, MO! Heber Springs tomorrow! :)

 Tuesday morning about 0730 we left Laramie after a horrible night's sleep for me. I swear they forgot to put the mattress on the box springs! We've stayed in several Motel 6's along the way before, especially when we were moving Bryan and Cheryl to Arkansas. They don't charge for animals and they've always been great! 

A great drive across Wyoming and Nebraska. Our goal was Lincoln, Nebraska and we made it. I made reservations at a Travelodge and it was great! Newly remodeled and everything was brand new! The bed was awesome! 

When I had just turned 6 years old and in 1st grade in FL, Lincoln was
my favorite president. For Christmas that year I got a brand 
new desk and a puzzle of the US. I also got a book all about
President Lincoln. I believe this book inspired my love of reading.
I remember sitting at the desk all day reading and putting 
together the puzzle. πŸ˜€ I still have a special place for Abe! 

What he's looking at in Wyoming!

trains all night long! 😁

This morning (Wednesday) we left around 0740 and headed out. Our goal was Springfield, MO for the night. A beautiful drive, not a lot of traffic other than hitting some commute traffic this morning. No problems though and nothing like other cities we've seen! 

We got through Kansas City MO with no problems. As we neared Springfield we decided we'd be there too early to check into the motel so we moved on and decided to head for Branson, MO. We did make a stop at Ozark, MO to pick up a few things at Walmart.

No desire to visit, but it's a big city! 

WE've been to Branson in the past and thought it'd be a great place to spend the night and it's only 142 miles away from Bryan and Cheryl's place in the morning! 

We hit rain and a little fog as we neared Branson! We got checked into our room at a Baymont  Thousand  Hills motel.  Newly remodeled and it's beautiful! Everything again is brand new and top of the line. The bed is incredible! Reasonably priced too! 

The highway was beautiful!

The rain was pouring as we got registered. We asked for first floor and we are right where we can see the car. 

We've had a little thunder and heavy rain as we've enjoyed ourselves during happy hour! 🍺🍷

Now for some dinner and then tomorrow we will head for Bryan and Cheryl's house!πŸ’™πŸ’– Have a great evening from rainy Branson, MO!


  1. Happy to hear you two are having good trip. Too bad about the bed, but it was only one.
    Safe travels.


  2. You two are great travelers and on the road a lot !
    Bet it’s even nicer in your new Subaru.
    Haven’t been to Branson in years.....was it crowded ?
    Safe journey to youπŸ€—
    Linda a.

  3. You never know what to expect in motels. We rvers are all used to having our own beds with us but it sounds like they got better along the,way.
    Nixe trip! Have fun at B & C's!

  4. Cruising right along! I loved Branson. Wish I could have stayed longer. You are certainly lucking out with MOST hotels. Hope the rains don't slow you down.
