The Kenworth Tour

Last week my sister-in-law very generously offered to take our three kids for a week so I could go out on the road with my truckin' husband.  He's only home on weekends and we never have enough time together. Alone.

It's a busman's holiday for him, but a real holiday from kids and domestic drudgery for me!

The accomodations are not 5 star, but cozy, clean and I don't have to make the bed.
There is also a microwave and coffee pot.

The scenery varies from grain elevators (this is Cargill in Kansa city, MO) where we get loaded with bean meal (ground up grain destined for chicken feed)...

...To breath-taking wonders like this limestone blasted away to make way for a road in southern Missouri.

There are also curious attractions along the way.
(Peculiar really is a town in Missouri!)

Hoping to post again as long as my air card gets signal!

Hoardica is not the only one who gets to travel!

Wow!! Very cozy!! Tooling down the road, so high up, watching the world go by!!! Fun, fun, fun.
We have Cargill out here also- lots of chicken farming.

What a blessing to have that time with hubby and free of kids for a change. That doesn't happen much for young mothers.
