Our Time is Almost UP

Follansbee, West Virginia
Meadowbrook RV Park

It's hard to believe that we've been here nearly a month. When we arrived the manager, Stacy, said to pay when we knew how long we were going to stay.  I had no idea we'd be enjoying ourselves so much that the time would go so quickly but I realized our month is up on Sunday.  Reluctantly, I went and paid up.  

Even though this isn't much of a RV park we've enjoyed the full hook ups and the 50 amp service.  We've enjoyed our neighbors and I'm sure we'll see them again some day.  

This park is centrally located between all three girls.  Bill and I love the drop by atmosphere.  

We played golf again and I must say I had some great shots, followed by some terrible ones.  I think I lost 4 balls.  Bill and I joined up with two fellows and a grandson for the 7th, 8th and 9th holes.  
Here's Adin who is 6 and a half.  He said he hadn't played in about a year.  He had his own set of clubs and was a very good player.  

Here's our score card. Notice nothing written on it.  We only use it for a map of the course.  The winner is the one who loses the least balls.  Total cost for the two of us for 18 holes and a cart (without a seat belt) was $20.  

We saw the beaver again in the same area as last time we played.  I didn't think to get a photo before he headed to the water.  
There were many ground hogs we saw, and they didn't seem to be afraid of humans.

I did have a scary situation.  I was going down a steep hill (either up or down here, there is no flat) to retrieve one of my better shots when I put the brakes on and the golf cart just slid down the hill before doing a donut.  The donut saved me because there was another lake at the bottom.    

Of course, some fellow Bill knew had stopped to talk to him.  Why is it that you do something stupid and there's always someone there to see it?

Yesterday we never left the RV park.  We finished working on the Greyhounds for the upcoming Escapees Chapter 45 rally, which took most of the day.  We were going to go to Levani's baseball game but it was the hottest day of the year at 90 degrees with humidity to match.  Bill was also feeling a little under the weather with some sinus problems and it felt good to just stay home and veg. 

I finally made reservations for the Tennessee Montana Rally.  We were really torn because we would like to go to the Nebraska one but it would have been over a 1,000 miles west and then we would have turned around and come back east to attend the national one.  We'll really miss the people we met last year from the Nebraska Montana Rally.  

Bill's best high school friend is headed up from Florida and we are going to hook up with him somewhere.  

I guess I better get the maps out and plot a course.  

Turtle Safely.......


  1. Glad you've enjoyed your visit, golf and family, not necessary in that order.

  2. Isn't it wonderful when you are having such a great time you don't even notice the time passing. You'll get to meet some great new folks at the Tennessee Rally. Have fun.

  3. It is nice to visit with family and nice to be on the road, we have the best of both worlds.

  4. Isn't it such an awesome feeling when you are some place having such a great time that you don't want to leave? We have had happen a couple of times.

    What a neat location you two have. So glad you got to spend so much time with the kids and grandkids.

  5. It certainly is nice to be in a place for a whole month and still enjoy being there. Being around family even puts the frosting on the cake. The only thing we'e discovered is that them working gets in the way!
