The two RV Gypsies in Kansas
July 6 & 7, 2012

sign: Welcome To Kansas

Junction City is a city in Geary County, Kansas, United States. Fort Riley, a major U.S. Army post, is nearby.

The day the two RV Gypsies arrived at Thunderbird Marina & Campground, it was 103 degrees, so the only thing they did was swim in Milford Lake, shown below.

Milford Lake at Thunderbird Marina & Campground in Kansas

Milford Lake is the largest man-made lake in Kansas with 15,700 acres of water. Over 33,000 acres of land resources are managed for quality recreational experiences as well as for protection of the project’s natural and cultural resources. Approximately 70% of the land resources are available for public hunting. West Rolling Hills Park is located near Thunderbird Marina & Campground, but the two RV Gypsies didn't find it until they had already parked their RV at Thunderbird Marina, shown above.

July 7, 2012 was even hotter than the day before; 105 degrees with high humidity, so the two RV Gypsies spent the major part of the day at the Wizard of Oz Museum in Wamego, Kansas.

A children's book by L. Frank Baum and the people of a small community took on the task of constructing a home for over 2,000 Oz artifacts dating from 1900 to today. The OZ museum was built with a major grant from the State of Kansas and the generosity of the people of this small community, who also provided thousands of hours of volunteer time.
