We make a side bar up into Missouri…

Out on the road this morning, just past 8:30… made a quick stop at a Bank at a Wal-Mart to stock up on some cash…

Being a retired Bank Manager, I get a blast out of going into strange Banks and see how they operate…  Check this Bank below… they have this being car port thing going, and you drive your car into it, and stop by one of the two big plastic clear tubes you see near the centre of the pic.  If you are say, cashing a cheque, you stick it in the tube, and it gets sucked up and into the teller sitting inside the Bank and your cash is returned to you the same way, via the big tube!  Very strange.   I went into the Bank, as I didn’t thing the RV would go under the roof, and there are only 4 tellers running the Bank… no manager in sight, no support staff… very strange again… not like when I worked when I was always the first one there in the morning… 


We are in Springfield, Missouri tonight, and here is a picture of our site… staying at another Passport America park for $15.00! 


Sorry about the blurrrrr…. but we did see our first Robin of the spring!


We stopped at Carthridge, Missouri, hoping to find some RV stuff, but we did not have any good luck.  The place had a lot of used parts etc., but not what we were looking for… so next time.

We are now only 2 days away from arriving in Tennessee to visit Shawn and Jenn and the Kids!  Can’t wait! 

Till tomorrow…


  1. safe travels a you heat to Tennessee!!!..enjoy your time with the kids!!

  2. At least I didn't see any snow in the park you're in so that's an improvement.

    Weird looking bank for sure! Tubes??
