Hello from Prescott, IA
Drafted Thursday evening – May 16 2019 (First post of this travelogue)
Published Saturday evening – May 18, 2019
This has been a bit of a strange trip. On Tuesday (5/17/19) I drove Pat and her sister Judy to the airport so they could meet up with cousin Linda and they then flew to Kansas City. There they met cousin Jeanne and drove to St Charles, MO for a genealogy convention. The convention was from Wednesday through Saturday afternoon. On Sunday the four ladies drove back to Kansas City. Judy and Linda flew back to Denver while Jeanne and Pat drove back to Prescott where Jeanne and Bill live.
My original plans were to leave Evergreen around 5/1 and drive the bus to a car show in Dewey. OK. However, I ran out of time to get the bus ready for that leg of the trip. Plan B was to drive the bus to Prescott but I still did not have time to get it ready. So, we went with plan C which was to drive the Camry.
I left Evergreen Friday 5/10. In the old days I might had driven straight through to Prescott (650 miles and over 9 hours). However, I have a ton of Holiday Inn points, so I stopped in Kearney, NE for the night. That made the drive fun and much easier on this tired old body.
Sadly we have not been back here for over two years. We have really missed all of the great folks and have been doing our best to visit with as many relatives as possible.
The weather started out cold and damp, but it got up to 90* on Thursday.
We left Prescott Friday morning around 7:30. We hit some rain early in the day, but that cleared up fairly quickly. Our trip home was fairly uneventful till we hit Fort Morgan. As we passed the water treatment plant a huge ground fog crossed the highway. As soon as we entered the fog, it turned pitch black and we could not see even a few feet in front to the car. Fortunately the cars in front of us kept going and the car behind us slowed down with us.
When we got home, we saw that there were several tornados in the area but the Fort Morgan event was not reported as a tornado. We did not see any signs of the really bad weather thank goodness.
That is all for this trip.
