The bike riders were up and at 'em nice and early; there was only one left when I went for my morning walk around 8:45. The excitement for the morning was watching a pair of DOT vehicles that went through the campground road & patched the potholes. Good to see - there was one that was about 2' across & 6" deep.
Still a bit cool at 52°F at 11:30AM. The predictions are for cloudy but warmer days for the start of the week with rain on Wednesday.
One of my comments from the last time I was here was the heated bathrooms - While there are still registers in the wall, not much is coming out of them. The fan starts with the lights when you enter, but the heat doesn't. I'll wait for warmer weather before heading for a shower.
I looked up one of the public radio stations that I had problems understanding the format - yesterday afternoon they read "Dear Miss Manners" for three straight hours. Turns out WYPL, 89.3 is a station run by the Memphis Public Libraries that reads books, newspapers & magazines as a public service. While I have listened to stations that did a half hour of this type of programing, and remember when New York Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia read the Sunday morning comics on the air (well, remember isn't quite right since he stopped when I was a 1 year old), this the first station I've run into that does it all the time.
I took a couple of photos during my walk around to check out the usability of the sites. Site 40 has the most steps up to the tent platform, table and fire ring. On site 38 you get a free charcoal grill, but no steps to the picnic table!
|Site 40||Site 38|
I drove up the hill to the "B" section of the campground, and it is much nicer. Not only that, but my AT&T phone started to show a signal. All the sites but one either had a RV on them or reserved tags. If I make reservations early enough the next time I plan to stop here, I'll try for "B".
Dinner was a salad.
Until Next Time -
