Country hospitality in Red Bud

... of corn and soy beans. Corn is everywhere! It's tall, it's green and it's worth a lot of money. Perfect growing conditions with ideal rain, hot temperatures and a more than ample amount of humidity. We toured around the countryside, swam in the new pool and then went out for Mexican! Great relaxing ...

Muddling Through

A travel blog entry by boulderbigs


As successful and enjoyable as last week was on the Katy Trail, this week has been full of challenges. After spending Friday in the ICU of the Okawville Super 8, Chris uses the Scott Bigler strategy of sweating the crud out of my system as we take off eastward on Saturday.

While stopped in just one more parking lot looking at the phone which is directing us to go westward once again, St ...

A travel blog entry by tbasler


Thanks to Chris and Larry we are guests in their family campground. Larry and Pete are childhood friends and even went off to college together. Marvin and Ethelin are the patriarch and matriarch to a family of 6 sons. They now all have families that enjoy this compound. The family built the lake, campsites, cabins, beach pavilion, volley ball court, and marina. It is amazing. They excavated the 100 acre 1 mile long lake. Well that is the ...
