Chapter 38 - Oacoma to Jackson, Minnesota
For the first time in quite some time we decided to stay at a campground for only one night instead of two or more. We selected Jackson, Minnesota as our stopover location simply because it was about half way between Oacoma and Minneapolis. It was not on the Oregon Trail nor was it on the Lewis and Clark Trail. It was simply an old farming town in southwestern Minnesota. Fortunately our somewhat random selection of the Jackson KOA provided to be satisfactory for we had full service hookups, we were in a shaded location, and we had internet access that actually did provide us with real workable internet access. The weather while somewhat cloudy most of the day was still pleasant with the high temperatures only in the low 80s.
Tomorrow we are driving up to the Minneapolis/St Paul area where we plan to stay at the St. Paul East RV Park that is located just off I-94 east of St Paul, Minnesota. For the first time in more than a month rain is expected so we plan to leave early hoping to avoid arriving at our new home in the pouring rain. Frankly it is remarkable that this has not happened to us since we left Florida on May 26th.
