Lincoln Nebraska to Cassody Kansas

The Great Plains UMC meeting at Lincoln was informative and inspirational.  It was held downtown Lincoln at the Lied Center which is only a few blocks from the Haymarket area.  After sitting all day at the convention, I just wanted to get back to our RV and sit outside in shorts, cold beer in hand so we never made it to the historic district. 

The RV park is only about five minutes from the NU football stadium and only a few minutes further to the Lied.  Can you imagine how full that park is all fall?  It is clean and well maintained.  We have to admit sometimes it is nice to pay the price for a nice place to park. 

Dale Lilyhorn from WindCrest Winery told us about a popular pizza place nearby named Raymono’s.  So, one evening we drove back out that way for pizza.  We agree with Dale, it is delicious pizza!  We ordered the special, Cheeseburger pizza.  I am sure we lost a month of our life with all the fat in that pie, but it was definitely worth it.

We left at noon Friday driving straight south on Hwy 77 toward the site of the Symphony in the Flint Hills where we were scheduled to volunteer in the seating area again this year.  It was a nice drive through fertile farm land. At Manhattan, we continued south on Hwy 177 to Council Grove, Cottonwood Falls and then Cassody.  We located the Symphony site and then spent Friday night at El Dorado Lake. 

It’s good that we left Lincoln at noon.  It was a longer drive than we anticipated.  By the time we pulled into our spot at El Dorado Lake, the sun was dropping.  More about the Symphony tomorrow.
