On the Road~ Historic Champ Clark Home

Pete and I both enjoy history~ which means we explore the back roads, getting off the main highway to check out landmarks, even cemeterys, they are full of history.

Coming home from a mini weekend in Kentucky the drive home took us thru Missouri. As we approched Bowling Green a roadside sign said: Historical home of Champ Clark.

My dad had told me my grand father's nick name was Champ, so we drove into town to check out this historical home and read about the politican from Missouri.

Love lil mini trips with no particular place or destination, stopping on a whim to explore an area.

Posted the link to the website at the bottom of the pictures. Interesting read if you love history.

I should travel with you and Pete. My husband will not venture into the unknown, unless we are lost!

Sometimes it helps if I'm the driver. lol. He allows me to go on goosechases as he calls them, but I don't think he really minds. :)

Come join us on our next journey, if we are ever in Michigan, we'll drag you both along and get lost together. lol~!
