Left Peculiar, Missouri early enough to pass right on through Kansas City, Missouri and Topeka, Kansas with little or no traffic. Heading west on I70 and will continue on I70 all the way to Denver.
As I was approaching Abilene, Kansas I happened to see a road sign advertising the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library just one mile off the interstate in Abilene. I remembered back in 1988 when I passed by here on my way to Norfolk, Virginia from Bremerton, Washington. I saw the twin to that sign coming from the west. But it was late and I just went right on by. I often thought about how I wished I could of stopped. Well this time I did stop. It was just after noon and I was not going to go by without stopping and visit with Ike.
The Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library, Museum, Family Home, Visitor Center and grounds is very serene and pleasant place to visit. The grounds are wide open like a college campus with plenty of shade trees and grass. There are several picnic tables around for people who want to visit for a picnic lunch.
While I was at The Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library, Museum, Family Home, Visitor Center, there was no crowd. Just the way I like it. I was able to go from and through the visitor center, the Family Home, the Museum to the Library and I only saw about 50 people.
After leaving Abilene I continued on west to Russell, Kansas where I found an RV Park to stay in. After arriving I decided to spend the weekend here. Russell is a quiet mid western town. A good place to relax over the weekend. I don't want to arrive in Denver over the weekend because I will probably have a hard time finding an RV Park to stay in this time of year. Campers are out in full force.
