Drove to Stuart, Iowa. Casey’s General Store allowed RV parking. I was the only one. Yippy skippy. Ha! By 11:30p trucks had me boxed in like a sardine. My generator sounded odd, and I turned it off. To hot to leave the windows closed and too many diesel fumes to leave them open. I headed west again.
Maybe two exits beyond Casey’s General Store was the city of Adair, complete with a city park for camping. It was $15 a night that included electric with access to water and a dump station. I parked and turned on the air conditioning. Life is good.
Another RVer left early, and I continued my morning routine of coffee, reading edits, and feeding the pups their dry kibble. I checked the Highway weather advised caution because the heatwave should arrive that afternoon and it would affect the next three states I would travel through. I stayed put. I had electric for my air conditioning, plenty of water, showers in the washhouse.
The heat advisory was in effect until Saturday. No need to push my rig over one-hundred-twenty-degree asphalt. I’ll stay until Sunday morning.
