Day 27 July 6
Who knew, but Kansas City, Missouri is a fantastic city! Between the fabulous old buildings, the modern new ones, the arts district, the hills, and the food, this was looking like a fun place!
We had a great lunch at Fiorella’s BBQ. Now Mark could check that off of his “must do while in Kansas City” list. The food was really good, and, OMG…. the carrot cake was to die for. A gourmet version of what is one of my favorite desserts!
Since it was a Sunday, almost all of the shops and galleries in the arts district were closed, but we still enjoyed looking around and taking pictures.
It was getting hotter and more humid by the minute. Following our visit to the WWI Memorial, we turned on our generator so that we could run the a/c for an hour or so. We, and the dogs, had hit our heat threshold.
On our way out of the city at the end of the day, we missed our exit, and ended up in Kansas. Yippeee!! Another new state! And, one that I didn’t think we’d make it to at all.
Due to some road construction and a closed exit, we had to stay on the highway for a couple of exits before turning around. Driving more than one exit’s worth, constitutes a full-blown visit to a state. And so, I checked Kansas off of my list of states I needed to visit!
Safely back in Missouri, we landed for the night at Lake Jacomo Campground. It looked beautiful, until we realized that the mosquitos were as big as birds and were surrounding the space shuttle.
There was no bug swatter big enough or fast enough to take on the skeeters, nor bottles of toxic bug spray large enough, and so we holed up inside the RV until we could make our escape in the morning.
