at Nebraska City
Friday, September 15, 2017

Last Friday, 8 Sept, we finally got out of Nebraska, crossing the Missouri River into Iowa at Nebraska City, NE/Sidney, IA. We crossed Missouri on US 36, stopping for the night at Long Branch State Park near Macon, MO.

Saturday, 9 Sept, we drove to Cape Girardeau, MO. After setting up at the Cape Camping & RV Park, we went to the casino to make a deposit.

Sunday, 10 Sept, we crossed the Mississippi River at Cape Girardeau into Illinois. We crossed the Ohio River into Kentucky at Cairo, IL. Then home at last.

We had a great trip, though shorter than usual. We saw familiar sights and some new places. Also new faces and an old familiar one.

Here are our stats:

We traveled 4,252 miles

We spent 18 nights in campgrounds

Average cost per night $20.79

We purchased 368.752 gallons of gas

Average cost per gallon $2.48

Average miles per gallon 10.94

That's all for this trip. Thanks for going with us.
