How about a little tree trivia? 1) Do you know what tree is shown on the new Vermont quarter? 2) How about the largest tree species by volume? 3) What about the tree associated with Lebanon? 4) Do you know what tree is known for its knobby knees? 5) This tree is to the South what the lilac is to the North -- what is it? 6) What is the tree Robert Frost talks about in his poem? 7) In England this tree is called a sycamore? 8) Mississippi's state tree is what? 9) What was President Andrew Jackson's nickname? And 10) Texas state tree is what? To give you time to think, I'll post the answers at the bottom of this post.
Today has been a laid-back, relaxing kind of day. We didn't do anything in particular...we did find Wal-Mart. We visited the Route 66 dealership -- Basden's American RV Center. We knew none of the service folks would be there, but Alan wanted to talk to the Parts person. He informed us they could not order parts directly from Winnebago since they are not a Winnebago dealer. Because it's very possible we may need a particular part, we have now decided to push on tomorrow towards St Louis where there is a Route 66 Winnebago dealer, as well as one on the way in Zeigler, Illinois. We wish they had told us that when we spoke with them Friday morning, but now we know.
We are in Site 28.
