Lucky us ! ! !

It was a pleasant day when a large red truck camper rolled down our driveway. Out popped two lively souls with big hearts and many stories to share. It was perfect medicine for a family hiding from covid. If they decide to overnight in your driveway You are blessed.

Wonderful stay

Mike and Karen and superb hosts. We enjoyed the appetizers and conversation on their back porch. Easy access to a level parking spot and plenty of room for our 30-foot trailer and pickup truck. 30 and 50 amp electric access. Quiet location. We will plan to stay again when passing through the area.

Turkeys Welcome

Mike and Karen are very nice host. They have some beautiful acreage for you to enjoy wild life. Turkeys come up and eat fallen seeds under the bird feeder. Birds enjoying the bird bath. Humming birds flittering around. Deer at edge of woods. So peaceful except for this weekend lol. They live in a cul-de-sac and I went out to join the neighbors as they shot off fireworks 🎆 for the 4th of July.
This was an enjoyable visit with new friends. In the mornings I was invited to join them on the back porch to drink my coffee I'm not a coffee person so I brought my preferred caffeine.

Great couple, great stay

Had a really nice time at MikeandKaren’s. They live in a beautiful area of Missouri and near the Wilson’s Creek battle field. My hosts were very friendly and we were able to have an enjoyable conversation on their back deck. They were just really, really nice folks.
