Oddities on Day Three:

I passed through a town named Reliable, Missouri. The exit was named Reliable Way. I wonder if the residents find it funny. I did.

I ate lunch by chance at the same Subway in Carthage, Missouri that I'd eaten at the other two times I've made this drive. This is my third time on this route since 2007.

I stopped for gas in Nevada, Missouri at a place called The Smoke Stop. The parking lot was full. Is $28.00 a good price for a carton of cigarettes?

My CRV is performing admirably when it comes to gas mileage. I've spent less than $60 on gas so far. "Misty" is averaging 33 mpg.

I believe I'm the only guest not traveling with a dog staying tonight at the La Quinta Inn in West Des Moines, Iowa.

I stopped at the Amish Country Store in Lamoni, Iowa and purchased two jars of homemade Apple Butter and one jar of Strawberry Rhubarb jam. I sure do wish I could afford some of their custom made furniture!

Home sweet home

Amish furniture. Perhaps one day soon. With a house, there is always room for a furniture makeover. But get settled first.

At least you know where to find the Amish store!
