Friday, March 2, 2018 - Joe Pool Lake Campground, Grand Prairie, TX, Day 2 - 0 Miles, 5,581.8 Towing Miles For the Trip

A quiet day. I changed the sheets (always a project in a small trailer) and moved outside to sit in the sun once it warmed up during the afternoon. Just after my 3:00 eye drops, I headed for the showers. I have to say the showers in bathroom #8 (the one across from my trailer) are by far the most useless of the trip. Two showers, both push button. The clean one (I discovered why) doesn't run at all. The other one with lumps of soap all over the floor shoots out a thin single stream of water. Two hooks on the wall, but useless since the spray bounces water onto anything hung on them. The side walls are too high to drape things on, no bench or shelf inside or outside the shower stall.

I decided to stand to the side of the stream & push the button a couple of times to let it warm up. Warm up it did. The water was so hot that it burned my ankles. The further up the stream, the hotter! I backed out & headed back to the trailer where I will be taking my shower, probably tomorrow.

That was about it for the day.

Dinner was the left over chicken breast. I was going to make some "from scratch" empanadas using it and a left over refrigerator pie crust, but got lazy and just ate it cold, along with some cottage cheese & a container of refrigerator sliced peaches.

Until tomorrow -
