Oklahoma Route 66 MuseumClinton Oklahoma A Route 66 museum is a museum devoted primarily to the history of U.S. Route 66, a U.S. Highway which served the states of California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, and Illinois, in the United States from 1926 until it was bypassed by the Interstate highway system and ultimately decommissioned in June 1985.

RV Nomad Life | Best Kept Secret Campground In Kansas!
They always say Kansas is flat and boring, but in reality, it has some of the best camping in America. Come check out Hillsdale State Park and why it is one of our favorite places to camp in the United States!
We stayed in the Sunflower Campground at Hillsdale State Park. This park is host to a wide variety of activities including camping, boating, fishing, archery, a shooting range, beach, primitive camping, and full hook up RV Campgrounds. They have an excellent cell signal which made it the perfect place to get some work done and relax on the beautiful prairies of Kansas. Each site has a fire pit and a picnic table. The sites are also oversized. Many of the RVers here have boats next to their RVs and still have space! We lived about 30 minutes away for years and never even knew this was here. If you are looking for a good spot to hang out near Kansas City, we highly recommend this location. We paid $160/week.

Visit the link below to learn more about scuba diving the Benwood Wreck.
History of the Benwood Wreck: The Benwood Wreck lays northeast of French Reef in Kay Largo, Florida. The 360-foot Benwood was a Norwegian merchant freighter built in 1910. This wreck’s story of how it became is an interesting one that takes us back to the night of April 9, 1942 when the Benwood was on a routine voyage from Tampa Bay, Florida to Norfolk, Virginia with a load of phosphate rock.
Benwood WreckThat same day, the Robert C. Tuttle was traveling to Texas. This was during World War II and there were rumors of German U-boats in the area. Both vessels traveled completely blacked out to avoid the enemy. At 12:45 a.m., the Tuttle turned starboard (right) as the captain sighted a black object ahead which was believed to be a U-boat. The captain signaled with one blow of the ship’s whistle, “I intend to turn starboard.” There was no response from the Benwood. At 12:50 a.m., the Benwood sighted a black object and sounded the whistle twice indicating, “I intend to turn port (left).” There was no response from the Tuttle.
It’s believed the Benwood and Tuttle were unknowingly on a collision course with each other. Captain Skjelbred of the Benwood made a last-minute effort to avoid the Tuttle by ordering the engine full astern (fastest reverse). Moments later, the bow of the Benwood crashed into the Tuttle’s port side above the waterline. The collision caused the bow of the Benwood to collapsed upon itself. The Benwood quickly took on water and the crew was forced to abandon ship. The Tuttle sustained minor damage.
The day after the collision it was discovered the keel of the Benwood was broken and the vessel was declared a total loss. Her superstructure and cargo was salvaged. The salvaging on the Benwood Wreck prompted John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park to create a protection program in 1959. This helped to prevent further damage to the historical Benwood Wreck. After being salvaged, the Benwood was later used as target practice by the Army Air Corp, which became the US Air Force. She was then dynamited as she was a navigation hazard.
The wreck is protected under the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary which was formed in 1975.
Diving the Benwood Wreck: The Benwood Wreck rests between 25 feet to 55 feet of water northeast of French Reef off the coast of Key Largo, Florida. Be very careful of the jagged, rusted, fire coral encrusted metal when exploring the Benwood Wreck. Between the history and its shallow depth, This wreck is one of the most popular dives in Key Largo.
This dive site is home to many Jawfish – we almost felt like we were exploring Blue Heron Bridge!
