We left the Amana Colonies this morning after a very enjoyable week. Roger and Mary Baird arrived yesterday so, of course, we had to go out to dinner. It seems that's what RVers do a lot! We had a very nice dinner at Ronneburg's Restaurant in Amana.

We had planned to leave Amana between 8 and 9 AM this morning, so we finally left around 10. Fortunately, we had a short drive of 255 miles west to Papillion, NE where we will stay for a few days at Walnut Creek Lake and Rec Area. We stayed here last May, so if you'd like to learn more about the area and this city-run campground you can take a look at that blog entry.
On the way we had to make a fuel stop. We filled up at a Pilot station near Brooklyn, IA for $3.61 after our Good Sam Lifetime discount. I believe that's one of the cheapest per gallon prices we've seen in quite awhile.
We arrived around 3 PM and let me say that we are certainly not acclimated to this heat and humidity yet. I know the temperature itself is not that high (for you folks truly out west), but the combination of heat and humidity is not my idea of a good time. Will have to move to cooler climes.
Oh, yes, about the title of this blog. That's a reference to the fact that we have no idea where we're headed after leaving Papillion at this point. We do need to make a reservation for the July 4th holiday, however, so that we don't wind up spending the holiday in a Wally World lot.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
