Traveling to Scott AFB, O'Fallon, IL

Our luck ran out.  I feel so sorry when I see someone hitch up and get ready for the RV move in the rain.  Well, today that was us.  Jim got really wet getting the hoses in and getting us ready to move out.  It wasn't pouring, just a rain that was enough to get you very wet.   We pulled out at 9:00 and arrived at Scott AFB at 3:15.

I took pictures of Louisville, KY as we're going through town.  We stayed on I-64 all the way to our destination. It was raining so the pictures will be cloudy looking.

It was a nice trip through Kentucky and Indiana.  The rain stopped a few minutes out of Louisville with sun peeking out once in awhile. We stopped at a rest stop on the Illinois border for lunch then moved on. Illinois and Indiana are very flat.  We heard on the news that severe weather may be in store for us tonight.

We arrived at Scott AFB and got set up.   I had my car windows open and these little string seeds were flying everywhere, including inside my car.  The truck bed is loaded with them.

 We ate some dinner and waited to hear from our son.  Here's our setup and site.

This is a very nice famcamp.

We went to our son's later in the evening.  The grandkids were all over us and wanted to tell everything that's going on.   They've grown up so much in a year.  We're going to have a ball for the next month with them and our son and daughter-in-law. It's raining, but nothing major happening yet.  I hope it stays that way.

Glad you arrived safely. It sure isn't any fun driving in rain, especially towing a 5th wheel in the rain.

The little "string bead" things are oak blossoms, the source of many an allergy in the central USA. It is good to have a good rain to wash away all of the pollen. It is also what causes the vehicles to look yellow each morning.

How lucky you are getting to spend some time with the kids. We have not seen our boys in Kansas for a year!
