Starry Night - "a bust"
We we able to get an earlier start on Friday and arrived at the campground by 4 PM. Quickly setup camp and unleashed the grandchildren on the unsuspecting park. They quickly explored their surroundings and made friends with some nearby children and several dogs...
Dudley and Patty had made friends with fellow "Airstreamers" (Don & Pam) and introduced us. We shared stories of our travels and agreed to meet again on our next adventure.
We unloaded Buoy (Smart car) of the firewood retrieved from our Halloween adventure. Who would have thought that this small car:
Could hold this much firewood?
Dudley prepared a home made soup for dinner and our motley crew "dug in".
We made S'mores for dessert...DW found "marshmallows on steroids" and a sticky, gooey good time was had by all...
The wives and kids went on several hiking trips and collected sticks, rocks, etc...
For breakfast Saturday, we enjoyed "big breakfast", a favorite on our trips. The kids wanted "pop tarts"...I guess their traditional favorite.
We grilled hot dogs and burger for lunch and while the others went hiking, Dudley and I adjusted the choke on his motorhome.
Late in the afternoon, the University of Memphis Astronomy Club cancelled
"Starry Night" festivities due to weather "cloudiness". Disappointment was evident on the grandchildren's faces...
We prepared Spaghetti, tossed green salad and garlic bread for dinner. Followed by a movie for the kids.
Slept in later then usual. Prepared biscuits, sausage gravy and cheesy eggs for breakfast. Grandchildren had...you guessed it pop tarts...
Wives and kids had us drive them to the trail head and leave vehicle at the end of the trail. Dudley and I relaxed around the campfire and discussed future trips.
We grilled burgers for lunch and began packing up for the trip home.
Penny performed admirable on our return trip...happy to report no issues.
With each trip, I add some "honey do's" to the list:
Repair Shower drain leak
Reverse refrigerator door opening
Pop rivet small moulding above drivers head
Add PVC holder for sewer hose
We hope to make a small trip over the Thanksgiving weekend...
