Then driving 47 miles from 5:17 AM until 6:01 AM when we arrived at Rest Stop, Pomona, KS. We left at 6:16 AM.
We then drove 71 miles from 6:16 AM until 7:23 AM when we stopped at QuikTrip, 5108 NE Vivion Rd, Kansas City, MO filled with gasoline and left at 7:33 AM.
Going forward again we drove 81 miles from 7:33 AM until 8:45 AM when we arrived at Casey’s4107 Miller St, Bethany, MO where we used the bathroom and then found a place to park and to sleep from 8:45 AM until 10:21 AM. I really needed that.

We then found our friends Mike and Dora who work at BRIDGEVIEW (RATHBUN LAKE) 20112 Old Hwy 5, Centerville, IA  After visiting with them, we returned to John and Dawn’s where we found that the air conditioner wasn’t working in the cabin where we are staying for the next couple of days. I took another nap in the car while Ella read and did things on her phone.
When the kids arrived John swapped out the a/c with one he had in his shed.
They took us out to eat at Jing Jing Chinese Restaurant, 717 1/2 N 18th St, Centerville, IA .
By the time we returned to their place, Ella was really ready for bed. She hadn’t slept since six o’clock Thursday morning.

Goodnight y’all and God bless.
