My favorite place to stop is Nashville, Tennessee because I love Nashville. Itís a pretty city and I love the Grand Ole Opry. Iíve been going for many years. On my way down I stopped in Nashville and the Opry was playing at the old Ryman Auditorium. Very special. Itís a fun place.

Our favorite place is Garland, Texas, because we have an aunt and uncle who live there and we love visiting them for a few days. It breaks up the time on the way home to Iowa. We go to Senior Dances and do exercises at their senior center. Itís fun. We enjoy being with them and we do some touring with them, also.
Casa del Sol
Everywhere is good. Thereís such a lot of interesting places. We like the Hill Country ó itís pretty. We found it by accident coming down last year. We also like to stop in San Antonio to visit the Alamo. Weíve been there several times. We love to see the bats in Austin (Congress Bridge Bats). We found that by accident too. Itís like going to a 4th of July parade. Everybody gathers with the kids, blankets on the lawn and wait for the bats to come out. Itís fascinating.
Silver Lake, New Hampshire/Palm Shadows, Donna
Weíre going up the Natchez Trace on the way home. Itís the first time weíre doing that. Weíve stopped in Gettysburg, the beaches in Alabama. Thereís a lot of good places to stop.
Webster City, Iowa/Palm Shadows, Donna
The South Forty RV Park by Giddings, Texas. We stop there on the way home. Itís off the beaten path and thereís a longhorn steer ranch across the fence. Itís fun to watch the steers running around out there - big ones. The wildlife is plentiful there. You hear coyotes at night. Itís a nice little park. Up on Hwy. 77. They meet you at the gate and lead you right into the place with a golf cart. You can drive right through. Inexpensive too.
Mindon, Nebraska/ Texas Trails, Pharr
My favorite place is Wichita, Kansas, because my daughter and her family live there. I stop and visit a few days on the way home. Weíve been coming down here since 1995. Iíll go to basketball games, volley ball games ó whatever theyíre playing.
