    on April 15th we were able to check off a significant item on our pre-trip checklist .... that being a couple from RV Armor came to our house to repair our camper's roof ....

    the day temps for the last few days have been a bit above freezing in Estelline ..... with the warming, the ice covering Lake Poinsett (located 12 miles west of Estelline) is breaking up .... the picture below was taken about 4 hours ago .... it shows Pier 81 restaurant which sits on the western shore of Lake Poinsett .... at its normal level, water's edge is usually 25 +/- yards from the building .... it appears that once again they are facing some spring repairs

    just learned that our daughter and her 3 year old foster son will be flying in to join us in Estelline .... they will be there and attend this year's Rodeo.... last summer both of our sons flew their families out there and had a great time .... it will be a busy week for them .... in addition to the rodeo, he'll get to see a wide range of farm animals and equipment .... having him out there will be a great deal of fun ..

    things are looking up .... as noted in our projected itinerary above we have modified our departure date from June 11th to the 8th and reduced our stay in St Louis from 2 full days to an overnight stop .... the changes had to be made so as to take care of some family commitments .... as can be seen Maureen has made our first three site bookings .... first picture our site on Feb 1st .... second picture our site today .... third picture a lot we own in town on March 9th .... fourth picture the same lot today
