Just after the IA Rally we had planned to wander down to one of our favorite parks just outside of Council Grove KS and spend a few days. It's a C.O.E park and is as great a place as there is. When we are done there we winterize and leave our trailer at a nice storage facility in town to wait for our return in January to head further South. No ice and snow to worry about while pulling the trailer and it's about 10 hours from home. It's worked out beautifully the last 3 years. But now the campground may be closed due to the gubment shut-down...bummer. We'll just have to go to plan B ....whatever that is...Don

We were going to leave last night for one last campout for this year, but due to the recent floods here in Colorado, we decided to stay home.

Instead, I'm getting ready to go out to hook up the trailer and take it to the dealer this morning for some warranty repairs and to get it winterized.

The park we were going to stay at is a state park, so not affected by the shut down, however.
