We haven't made it home from Sevierville (2006)yet. Instead of heading for north Georgia, we took off for Wisconsin to pick up some special seating and therapy equipment for our kids. After struggling through some major road work around Chicago, we dropped by Richland Center and Holmen WI to get the equipment, then drifted into Rochester MN before dropping down through Iowa and into Hannibal MO. Having some time on our hands, we came to Branson last night for a couple days. We drove along 76 on the way in and it has really grown since we were here several years ago (The Titanic towers over the middle of the area.).

We're at the Compton Ridge Campground (2007) and have a premium site which is near the office. It rained all night and, so far, most of the day. If it ever quits, I am anxious to wander around and find out where there sites are for big rigs. We're cramped on a sloping site, but convenient to the facilities. They handed us a cable modem which seems to work well with our laptop and their cable connection. Campsites we've seen so far are gravel, but the roads are paved, so even with the hills, it's easier to push wheelchairs here than it was at Sevierville. (After Sevierville, I think we'll usually travel with our new golf cart in the future.)

Get a good area map before you come next year. The whole area is usually crowded with traffic and the roads are narrow with not many places to turn around with a big rig if you miss your turn. There's lots to do here and it should be a fun time.

We leave for home tomorrow and will stop near Memphis on the way. Still 700 miles to go.

When the rain stopped, we found quite a few sites for larger rigs....Premium and Red Carpet sites. A change in plans has us in Little Rock tonight and Tupelo tomorrow night. Home finally on Monday. It's hot here, apparently like most of the country these days. The roof air and engine air aren't keeping it very cool in here during the day, but we're also running several fans to circulate what cool air there is and help keep the kids cooler.
