So we didn't drive very far, in fact we pulled over at the Walmart in Salem, and ended up just staying put. And it wasn't just a typical rainy day, I mean it poured buckets pretty much non stop.
When we left the campground yesterday morning, we had our route planned out but both GPS units suggested a backroad through the National Forest. There are a few paved backroads that would be okay for a vehicle like Sherman, so we figured this might be one of them. But it soon turned into a mystery tour as the road started out good but deteriorated by the mile. Eventually we came to a narrow bridge that Sherman decided to tackle for us, and we made it across. There were a couple of rangers on the other side and they said we needed to turn around and take the main highway! So we did.
Not a good road for a motorhome
It wasn't fun driving in the rain and we stopped a couple of times to see if it would let up. Eventually we made it to the Walmart in Salem and we needed to pick up a few items anyhow. By the time we finished up there we decided to just stay put. Ruth cooked a chicken in the oven to help keep us warm! This morning, the temperature inside Sherman was only 50F (10C) when we woke up! Guess we'll have to go further south!
Dinner was great (and it was all done without a microwave)
But today is starting off with a clear sky. We're headed to Ozark Riverways National Park for a day or two!
Yesterday's drive 56 miles (90 kms)
