Boomland!




Weary travelers at Boomland.


Our third road stop on the way home was at Boomland. This facility is in Charleston, Missouri and we have stayed here many times over the years. It seems that no matter what roads we take across Texas and Arkansas, no matter how many stops we make, no matter how early or late our morning start, we always wind up here right about sunset.


Not a bad thing, for the overnight camping is very good, the price is right, and Boomland offers copious food and plenty of shopping, if you are into knickknacks, souvenirs and the like. Fish special on Friday (and Monday) is $3.75. We ordered that, ate our fill and took enough home with us for Saturday night supper.


We made it home before dark on Saturday night, tired but relieved to be no longer at the mercy of the highways.

$3.75? Does driving to Boomland also involve a trip back in time?

Jim, incredible, isn't it?

I don't think I've heard of prices that good anywhere- and enough for the next day, to boot! Wow!

Beautiful flowers - better half looking great - enjoy being back home.

Shelly, not a deal one finds very often. Three pieces fish and three sides.

Vee, we are glad to be home!

That Dorothy wasn't jokin' when she said "There's no place like home".

Glad you are there. And safe.

Lin, too right Dorothy was right. Much as we love the good times in the Southland, there truly is no place like home.
