We had missed our annual camping trip last year as we were very busy with the girls activites and weather didn't cooperate when we had the chance to get away. I was bound and determined to get our camping trip in this year. We had decided not go in the spring so fall was it. We usually avoid the heat of the summer. The previous weekend we had traveled to Winfield Kansas for our annual family gathering and Walnut Valley Festival . I had been watching the weather in Bonn Terre Missouri for several days and it looked like it was going to be a nice weekend to go camping: a little rain Friday night but that was it.

I took the day off Friday and headed down about mid-morning. It has stopped raining at our home.
