Things are really looking up. I am in shorts today, and we had our best day yet !!
Our destination today was the small city of Hannibal. No sooner had we arrived when a big dually truck pulled up, and a gentleman I had never met called out my name !!
It was our first experience at meeting some very friendly RV'ers, who read our Blog .... Amazing !!
To actually see a reader in person, brought home the point of how small this world really is. We visited for only a short while, but I keep telling everyone that RV'ers are the nicest people, and Mike and Jane proved that fact again.
Mike gave me his phone number, and Jane her card, with strict instructions that if we needed anything, we were to give them a call.
We had such a great time in Hannibal. It is the community where Mark Twain grew up. It was so much fun to walk up and down the shops and museums that lined the streets. Everything was named after Tom Sawyer and other fictional characters.
It was also the very first time either of us had ever seen the Mississippi River.
One of my favorite Tom Sawyer stories, is where he tricked his friends into paying him, to do his chore of whitewashing the picket fence.
One of the main reasons we stopped at Hannibal in the first place, was to meet up with our RV'ing friends who stay at the Mark Twain Cave and Campground.
Now, we knew in advance, that Ed and Marilyn would not be here today, but we wanted to see where Ed gives the cave tours, and to see their spankin' new 5th wheel.
Wow, Teresa and I cannot wait to see the inside. Luckily, I think our paths will cross this winter in the Rio Grande Valley.
Let's hope that we have many more awesome days, like we did today !!
