Leaving Forest City -- arriving at Shelby, IA
We had the troublesome microwave oven replaced yet again, hopefully for the last time. Anyway, we are ready to roll and headed west toward Council Bluffs, IA. We ended up in Shelby, IA at a nice overnight park right next to the interstate.
Before leaving Forest City, we took a walk around the courthouse square and took this picture featuring a Civil War statue that honors the service that the city residents offered during that conflict.
Orinda looks happy to hit the road with her oven now 100%. We had a nice drive toward Council Bluffs except for a heavy crosswind that kept Rick busy! Fortunately, the coach ran well and we arrived without issue -- except for the minor detour we took when the first RV park we choose didn't pan out (what a dump that was!).
Tomorrow, we are planning to visit the Union Pacific Railroad Museum in the morning and then head down the road toward Council Bluffs. Should be fun!
