Well, after much anticipation, I finally was able to hit the road. I have been through Western North Carolina, Eastern Tennessee, then north into Kentucky. I spent the night in London (Kentucky, that is), then continued north and west into Indiana, on into Illinois. Stayed overnight in Mehamet, IL at a place called Tin Cup RV Park... I wondered where the tin cup part came from, and then noticed there was a driving range off to one side.

Since then, made it to West Omaha RV park and the wind was STRONG from Des Moines to there. Same thing pretty much all the way across Nebraska, sometimes not quite so strong, and varying in direction, but relentless anyway. Note did not mention going into Central time zone on Wednesday. Crossed into Mountain time zone Friday in western Nebraska. I stayed in Robidoux RV park in Gering, NE - with a good view of the Scottsbluff Monument itself. Picture of Scottsbluff and wagon at left from National Park Service. This name Robidoux comes from either Robidoux Pass - one of two through the Wildcat Hills are near the present day town of Gering, or a trading post north of the pass. On the drive in, I was disappointed with the hazy view in the entire area, but since found out it's because of the numerous forest fires from Alaska, Canada, and other lower 48 locations. So my eyes being irritated were not just road fatigue. But due to this haze, I am going to head south into Colorado for the near term to get away from the fire haze and just try to enjoy the country.
