Thursday, March 31, Village Creek State Park, Wynne, AR, Day 5 - 0 Miles, 6,348.1 Miles for the Trip

A little rain overnight, but clear most of the morning and afternoon. As usual, most of the RVs in the park (there were 5 other than me by late last night) had packed up & left. The Lance trailer next door is the only one other than me that is here for a bit. A couple of RVs pulled in during the day, but the place is still pretty empty.

Early afternoon I changed the sheets on the bed & headed to Forrest City to do laundry. While there is a Super Suds laundromat in Wynne, it had horrible reviews. I didn't seem to mind it during my 2016 stop, but maybe it has gone down hill since. In any case, it is only a couple of miles further to Forrest City so I went to the Forrest City Coin Laundromat. Lots of machines, both top and front loaders, and plenty of dryers. While they have a number of folding tables, there are no carts to move your damp clothes from the washers to the dryers. In any case, the place was clean, and cheap - a triple load commercial front loader was $3.00 per load. Double load front loaders in Quartzsite was $4.50. Dryers were $.25 per 10 minutes.

On the way back I stopper for gas - $3.79 per gallon was the best price in town - the rest of the stations were $3.89 - $3.95.

Back at the trailer I put the laundry away, then went for a walk around the loops before the predicted rain started. Looks like light but steady rain for about an hour.

I hope I'll be able to post this - while my Verizon Jetpack is showing one bar of 4G LTE service, I can't connect to the internet.

Verizon came back around 4:45.

Dinner was a salad.

Until Next Time -
