Tuesday, March 29, Village Creek State Park, Wynne, AR, Day 3 - 0 Miles, 6,348.1 Miles for the Trip

A warm night - 50°F at 7:00AM. While a number of RVs & a few tent campers showed up late yesterday, by my 8:30 walk this morning, most were gone. This seems to be a popular park for one night stop overs. There are now 2 RVs other than mine in the park. A dreary, but warm day. Heavy clouds, but no wind - it is 60°F outside at 11:00AM.

I stopped by the park office to recheck in since their computers were down on Sunday. The new price for the 8 days, which includes a senior discount, different charges for weekdays from weekends, taxes, etc is $179.56, or $22.45 per night.

After that I headed to Walmart to see if they had the raw version of Barber Foods frozen chicken meals. They did, so I picked up a couple of the Cordon Bleu & Cheese & Broccoli meals. I also grabbed a couple of the Chocolate Mousse desserts.

On the way back I stopped at Red River Ford to schedule an oil change & have them look at the truck's charge line. They said how about now? So, I headed for the customer waiting room. They discovered the truck needed rear brakes, so that was on top of the oil change. They couldn't find anything wrong with the trailer charge line. I may have to do some digging on my own of both the trailer & truck to figure out the problem. The "intelligent" charging systems in new cars & trucks can make troubleshooting difficult. You don't know if there is a problem or just the computer shutting things off.

Still a dreary looking day, although the temperature got up to 75°F. I decided it would be a good time for a shower. The bathrooms were still quite cold, but I didn't think they were going to get any warmer. The report - Very large drying area (the entire bathroom) but no hooks. A bench in the drying area. A small soap dish in the shower, but no other place for shampoo, etc. There was a shower curtain, but the high pressure showerhead is pointed at it and water immediately runs out underneath, covering 90% of the bathroom floor. They have embedded decorative pebbles around the shower & drying area drains. There are tough on bare feet. Plenty of hot water, although if you turn it down anything from full hot, it immediately gets cold. Overall, no better than a C-.

The wind has picked up. Even though it is warm enough, sitting outside is difficult - if you get up your chair blows over, and small branches and round spiky things are bouncing off the roof. I gave up and headed inside around 4:30.

I may not be posting tonight - Still no AT&T, and Verizon seems to have also dropped any internet connection. I'll keep trying...

Dinner was a Johnsonville Beddar Cheddar Smoked Sausage & the rest of the Brown Sugar Hickory Bush Beans.

Until Next Time -
