April 23, 2009 Columbia, MO to Independence, MO

This was a travel day but, gratefully, it was a short trip. On the way, we stopped at a Montana Dealership in Grain Valley, MO for some repairs on our awning. Nothing major but, when hauling our home behind us, something minor can explode quite quickly. We are very fortunate to have a great network of friends that can recommend people and places for us. This also came into the front this week when Carol needed a dentist and one has been recommended in Independence. She sees him Tuesday morning to have a look-see at a broken tooth. We are now at Campus RV Park in downtown Independence, within walking distance to the Truman home, etc and downtown. We are camped five sites down from MOC friends, Steve and Vicki Reigle, with whom we went to dinner and a quick tour of the outsides of Independence/Truman sites. There is a NASCAR race near here this weekend and the RV park is getting some of the race crowd. A fellow camper in Columbia gave us his cell number and said that if we wanted tickets to this weeks races to give him a call. Who knows? This temple is right next to our campground. It is the Community of Christ Temple, a similar religion to the Church of Latter Day Saints. It's architecture, as you see, is amazing.
