Our final two days for the trip began in Oak Grove, MO and we got on the road a little before 10am. First let me say that Kansas still wins the I-70 road condition prize and like CO, MO was working to get it better. For the whole trip I never complained about delays due to infrastructure repair – it’s direly needed.
We took I-70 east, then I-64 & I-270 around St. Louis and finally I-55 to Sikeston (good road and light traffic). We arrived at our overnight stop at Hinton RV Park, for our third time there, and once again found it perfect for an overnight stay. The site was level and long enough to not require unhooking, the utilities, cable, and WiFi all worked fine – it's convenient to I-55 and a service station with big vehicle pumps - definitely recommend this place.
While we didn’t have to unhook, we decided to drive the car down the road for our third visit to Lamberts Café – Home Of Throwed Rolls. We really liked it three years ago, thought it wasn’t quite as good two years ago and were really disappointed this time – probably won’t go back.
Our final day was longer than normal as we went from Sikeston, to Paducah,KY, to Nashville, then home and we experienced our worst roads of the trip on I-24 thru Nashville. We also noticed a big deterioration in TN's I-40 since we last traveled it.
We rolled into Almost Heaven South about 5pm on Wed and were glad to be home safe and sound – trip recap coming.
