Our last stop before home.
We were thinking about Blue Mound State Park just north of Luverne. This is a very nice park that we have been to several times. There was some severe flooding that damaged one of the two dams in the park in June, 2014. These dams were built by the CCC in the 30s. So it would have been interesting to see what happened. And Blue Mound is home to one of the biggest bison herds in the state, over 100 on one of the largest native prairie ranges left in the state. But we didn’t have a current park sticker for either the coach ot the Jeep and there is a water alert (something wrong with the water supply) in the park so there is no water. A bit of searching using our Allstays RV and Camp app and we quickly located a city park in Adrian only 10 miles or so past Luverne.
Adrian is a small town, about 1200 people. But they have a big city campground in a park area with softball diamonds, soccer fields, a swimming pool, a frisbee golf course and a big play ground. There are over 100 camp sites. Full hookups were about $26. We just wanted 30 amp connection over night for $22. A very nice campground, grass sites, showers, lots of shade. Great for overnight. They also had weekly, monthly and seasonal rates.
I forgot to take a picture.
So our last leg will east on 90 to Rochester and then north on 52 to Hastings. The routing things on the computers say 3 hours and 45 min. We add 20% to get 4-1/2 hours. Much more likely time for us.
We don’t think too much about getting home until we are on our last leg. We get were we get to. But now we are ready to get home, do what needs to be done. Apples need picking, yard probably needs to be mowed after two months and there are the mail piles, 80% goes straight to recycling.
But we have to get there first. Task at hand sort-of-thing.
Roger and Susan.
