Midwest? I think North Central is more accurate, but the census bureau disagrees. This region of the United States has also been called Midwestern, Middle West, the heartland, Old Northwest and Mid-America. Perhaps Mid-Northish is more accurate. Or how about this: Above Texas and Including Some Great Lakes
We spent Will’s birthday in Lewisville, Texas, with friends, Dale and Lucille. Naturally, we celebrated with a pizza. Dale had picked up a 55 pound of pizzeria flour and split it with us.
Will wanted a Coney Dog pizza and that’s what he got. Mercifully, I am not sharing pictures of said pizza. Instead, I will post the lovely Pearl.
So, our first evening in the Lewisville City Park, I took Pearl out for a walk and found this.
According to other RVers in the park, the Fifth Wheel had caught fire right after it backed in and was still attached to the tow truck. The fire destroyed the trailer in 12 minutes. No one was injured in the fire. Still the loss was awful. I researched online and learned the number one cause of fires in Fifth wheels are the tires. The bearings should be repacked every year. We just had ours done, so that is good. Also, that pesky fire detector that I take down whenever I bake, fry, broil, and make pizza? I put it back up before going to bed now.
After Lewisville, we camped near Stillwater, Oklahoma, in a park that belongs to OSU. It turned out to be graduation weekend and we only got a site because someone cancelled. We almost left Oklahoma without getting a picture of our well-travel pug. Almost.
In Kansas, we visited Arkansas City and Winfield, spent a few hours in Newton but the wind was horrendous, so we moved on to Salina. Salina always makes me think of Hitchcock’s Vertigo. You know, Judy Barton? From Salina, Kansas? If you don’t, watch the movie again and you’ll see.
The only pictures I took in Kansas were of a rainbow — reminds me of another movie — in Winfield at the fairgrounds. It was dawn and the sky was pink.
We are currently in Beatrice (that’s pronounced Bee-AT-triss) Nebraska at another city park.
