2010/253: Summer Road Trip, Part 9

I guess you could say that on August 17th we were officially on our way back home, but that didn’t stop us from doing anything fun! Greg saw a Spam Museum sign along the highway and said “let’s stop!” and I said “sure!” and we took a little detour to the Spam Museum.

Unfortunately we got there over an hour before the museum opened, but there was a gift shop right next door, that opened an hour before the museum. We took some pictures while we waited for the doors to open and then browsed through the gift shop, where Greg bought this:

That was his lunch the day after we got back home. Fried! He said it was pretty good.. better than he remembered (probably because it was peppered). I passed. No Spam for me, thank you!

After the Spam Museum Gift Shop we stopped at two wineries (did some shopping there, too).  The first one was Two Saints Winery, and the second one Southern Hills Winery, both in Iowa.

Then followed the Coffee truck 😉 to Kansas City, Missouri.

Kansas City was a scheduled stop, and yes, after that awful hotel in Wisconsin we learned our lesson and made reservations the day before! We checked into the hotel first and then finally made it to another DDD diner, RJ’s Bob-Be-Que Shack. The food was very good!

After dinner it was back to the hotel for a good nights’ sleep before our last leg home the next day. This was the view from our room.
