Nice relaxing two days

Carthage, Missouri, United States
I found this RV Park on The Google image was pretty nasty but the review were good so I thought the aerial photo might be at the wrong location.

Here's what we found when we got there...

I went to Google and found a more recent aerial but it had all these trees there which are not there now.
Also, some birds and flowers....

We ended up staying one more night as it was so peaceful and pleasant to stay at. Nice, nice owners. They're really putting some time, money and effort into beautifying this place.

Oh...and there is a real drive-in theater a half mile of only about 7 or 8 left in the country !
Then, on our way to Kansas, we stopped off at one of sites: Big Mouth, the world's largest coal shovel. "The
Town that Coal Built" boasts that it has the World's Largest Coal Shovel,
holding 60,000 lbs. per scoop. It is on display in Rich Hill's town center.
Rich Hill is located at US 71 and Route A, about 75 miles south of Kansas City,
MO. a nice rest area we found some flowers and an Eastern Meadowlark.

Steve, thanks for all the nice blog updates and photos. We met at USA Park, Gallup, NM April 2015. Since then, we've upgraded to a 42' MH and traveled over 8500 miles last year. Currently in Fredericksburg, TX heading toward VT in late Jul and on to the Gulf for the winter. See you down the road.

Steve, I hope you both have fun. Just thought you would like to know. I met a young man from Valdosta State University today that has a strong desire to be Govenor of the great State of Georgia one day. He is into politics already and agreed to help with my campaign for tax commissioner.

Ron and I arrived back home in Fenton MO last night. Two long days on the road, but nice to get home. He has MRI on Thursday and doctors on Monday. Will shoot you a note when we find our results. Bev
