Just joking, but it would be great if the two of them are up to it. Frank's cat would probably not want to give up it's perch and Popeye wouldn't be able to tell his best jokes in front of his Mom (maybe).

I used to pick out my cars by which one Mom could get into and out of easiest. I sure understand adjusting your plans to your parent's needs.

Lynne
Wouldn't that be awesome.

We will see about bringing Dad along, he is going with us this spring on a cruise to the Panama Canal, so you never know. Will have to see what he has planned for next summer.

Yeah that is cool that you all feel that way.
I've been trying to get mom to let me find a place that's warm year round or at least just for winter for over 15 years . Not happening

"I'm too old to go anywhere and I want to stay right here till I die.
All my friends and family are here and I'm not ready to go to that assisted living place either !!!"



"All your friends are dead ma , and you have the type of personality that wherever you go , within an hour everybody will be a new friend ,,,,,
and your arthritis will probably get better in a dry climate , and ........oh , I give up !

Most impressed with the cruise through the Canal. Now that the third lane is open it will be interesting to go through it again. Our ship was 72,000 tons and just fit. I think they can take ships in excess of 200,000 tons now.

Take a lot of SD cards with you when you go through. I took about 500 pictures while we transited the canal.

Tell her we would like to meet her and that she is required to supervise. Otherwise some of us will wander off and get into trouble!!

Mom was very similar. She really liked her home and was reluctant to leave. When I did get her out she seemed to enjoy herself. Deal was we would return soon.

Gordon,
I don't think that we go all the way through the canal, I think that we just go into the big lake, then turn around and come back out. It is a 10 day cruise, with a bunch of stops, It should be a good time.

Neat - if they stop and turn around I think they are there overnight so there is the opportunity to get off the ship and take an actual tour of the canal. I would love to go on that. When we were going through there were a bunch of folks at one of the gate houses waving at us. I assumed they were one of the tours. There was not that option when we did our transit as there was no stop.

Take lots of bug spray and use is liberally. The Zika virus is there.

Morning,

Popeye, My Dad died over 30 years ago and Mom didn't drive so Mom went with us on vacations. She loved to travel, She was from England. When I started talking about going somewhere she asked "When do we leave?" She was a blast on a trip and no one was a stranger. She was amazing and so was my Dad! She would have been all over this trip. She had a lot of friends who would not ever leave home. It was their safety net. But please keep working on Mom and show here this thread and you never know.

Frank, if you can get your Dad here that would be great! Cruise's are a great way to travel. I've been on two and will go again Just don't know when.

I wonder if the parents would tell us all when to go to bed. Hummmm Lynne

Gordon,
I am looking forward to see that part of the world.
Lynne,
I will work on Dad to come along, not sure that he will want to stay away from home that long, but we will work on it.
Frank

Glen Elder State Park

"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul." - John Muir.

Morning all. I am at Glen Elder State Park. Very large park and nice lake. I am in Kanza Campground. Site has water and electric, level concrete pad, and shade. View of lake. Site 31. I would do this one again. Kaw Campground is the other campground that has water and electric. No lake view. Has shade. I hope to have video later.

Impressions of Glen Elder. It is a lovely park. Great spacing between sites. 18 spaces in Kanza and 10 at Kaw, with elec and water overflow areas at both, just with no shade. Kanza probably has 10 extra and Kaw less. Bathroom are clean. Showers are small with just an on-off valve at showerhead. No adjustment on how hot or how cold? Never saw that one before. Pit toilets scattered around also.

Surrounding area. Nothing.

Small convenience store at marina in state park. Small convenience store with gas and diesel outside park, towards Glen Elder. In Glen Elder, no fast food, slow food, pizza, chicken, bbq, burgers, nada. No washateria. No grocery. At Cawker City, five miles west, a couple of bar and grills. Nothing near park for "taking in the sights".

And I think we are about the last weekend before Labor Day. So that would mean we might be traveling back home (or elsewhere) approaching or on Labor Day weekend so preparations would need to be made in that regards.

Because of the remote location I am assuming reservations for a large group like ours would be problematic here. We would definitely would have to make reservations on the first day we were able. I do not know when that date is.

Anyway just throwing out some food for thought here. Like I said, I hope to get video of campgrounds up soon.

Ron,

Thanks for the heads up info. Nothing like someone seeing what is available. Will see what everyone thinks. First registration date is sometime in September I believe. I was going to send our flyer to them and have them figure out best location for those going.

I love nature in it's raw but also like full connections. I will go with whatever the majority decide and am looking forward to meeting up.

Have a good rest of your trip. Lynne

Ron,

Very nice! Looks like it is rustic like we like. I like listening to the wind in the trees when going to sleep or waking up. Plenty of room for us to cook and sit together around a fire.

Waiting for others to chime in. Lynne
