Happy Birthday Dad!!
This morning I threw stuff in the trailer and left town at 9:30am. So far I know of one thing I forgot but it is not that important. Lovely day for a road trip.
I stopped at Kearney for lunch and gave a tour of the EggCamper on the first gas stop of the trip.
I continued north, listening to an audiobook. I had not made a reservation but I was planning on stopping at Clear Lake Iowa State Park for the night. That would have been about 368 miles. I was then moving on to Prior Lake, MN the next day. About an hour before reaching Clear Lake I was feeling fresh and decided I wanted to just continue on to Prior Lake. I called and they could get me in tonight in addition to Sunday night as I had already reserved.
Pulled into Dakota Meadows RV Park at Prior Lake, MN about 7:20pm just in the last few minutes before full dark. I drove 484 miles today.
Dakota Meadows RV Park is next to Mystic Lake Casino Hotel. It is in a suburb of Minneapolis. They have 122 paved sites. Great lighting, security and shuttles to the casino. They even have a dedicated RV wash here.
I took a walk around some of the RV park in the dark to stretch my legs and it looks pretty full. I did not see too many empty sites. No cable hook up here but my antenna is pulling in several channels so I am a happy camper. Of course since I am in the middle of a city my cell phone works great which means my hotspot works. I am expecting several days during this trip that I will not have cell phone service.
