Thursday, March 14, 2024 - Village Creek State Park, Wynne, AR - 159.8 Miles, 5,598.7 Miles for the trip

Not a bad trip to Village Creek. I started out with $3.09 per gallon non ethanol gas at the Toad Suck store. I only needed 10 gallons; best price for straight gas I've seen, in fact it is the same $ as the 10% gas at Loves on the way. Although I planned to take the back roads between Conway & Wynne, my GPS detoured me saying that part of the road on my route was closed. Since parts of the 2 lane roads didn't have a nearby alternative, I decided to go with the route the GPS picked which was almost completely on I 40. Very heavy traffic, but while cloudy, no rain.

I arrived at Village Creek State Park around 12:30, signed in at the visitor center & got 25% off for today as a senior discount. No discount for weekends (tomorrow). I'm in site B49, which is on top of the hill. First time I've stayed in the "B" campground - nicer than the one below, and there is cell coverage on both AT&T & Verizon - AT&T at 3.06Mbps down & .6Mbps up; Verizon at 14.9Mbps down & 1.0Mbps up. My notes on previous visit at the lower campground show no cell coverage.

The site is full hookup on a concrete pad that is only 1/2" off level, close to the bathrooms. Some of the sites have steep entrances, but most have level pads. With fees, discounts, and taxes, $39.03 per night for two nights. A near empty campground.

Site B49

After setting up I sat outside and read for most of the afternoon. Talked with a couple originally from NY now living in Vermont. They were interested in information about Quartzsite.

Dinner was a Guy Fieri's Sweet & Sour Pork bowl. I picked it up by mistake - thought it was chicken, but it was pretty good.

Until Tomorrow -
