30th Oct cont.

We had made a plan the night before of what route we were taking to nowhere and so jumped onto the highway and headed off towards St Joseph and then followed the state line up to cross over into Nebraska at the first opportunity. However, luck was against us. The Missouri River had other ideas. Recently, it had burst its banks and wiped out most of the roads crossing it, so we had to turn around and return to St Joseph and cross into Kansas first. They say things happen for a reason, but I was struggling on this one, until Dean pointed out that if we had not changed our route we would not have been able to pick up a Kansas map. As it happens we passed a Missouri Welcome Centre on our way back to St Joseph and they had most of the surrounding states maps. When we crossed into Kansas, again there was no visitor information. We were lucky to have got a map from Missouri. We then headed north to Falls City, Nebraska adding around an hour or so to our days driving and then followed the state line west and crossed back into Kansas to find another recommended free campsite with electric. We arrived at Clay Center Fairground around 7pm, found a site and plugged in. We cooked dinner and then watched Desperate Housewives downloaded on some free wi-fi. As it was still cold here in Kansas, we snuggled into our blanket and duvet and went to sleep.

31st Oct.

Happy Halloween. Woke up to a cold but bright morning around 8am. Packed up the van and headed off to find a nice sunny spot for breakfast. We found a nice spot by Lake Milford, in the sun and stopped to have our porridge to warm up. A little while later, we finished breakfast and then headed off towards Oklahoma. We stopped for lunch in a small town just inside the state line and then contninued on until we found a campsite.
