There's a reason some of us blog regularly. That's because my memory doesn't last long enough to remember what we've been doing the last couple of days.
If you'll notice, our site number has changed. We extended our stay but had to move to another site. Our site is a back in with trees on either side. They had a Good Sam rally that booked the area we were in.
While I was in the laundry room the owner came in and introduced herself. She asked if we were pleased with the place. I can't remember a place being any cleaner than here. The Wi Fi is great and the cable has a lot of channels.
Bill and I have been using the swimming pool a lot. I really like the salt water pools better than the ones that use chlorine. The down side here is that I think the rest of the town bring their kids here to swim.
We treated the truck to an oil change. It was difficult to find someone to do it. I called all the places on Yelp and no one wanted to do a diesel truck. The others didn't bother to call me back when I left a message. We had passed a place on the south side of town and they were more than happy to do the job. The charge was a lot less than we are used to. The man was explaining how much the synthetic oil cost him, and therefore the "high" price. Do you think it would be worth it to drive from Casa Grande to Tennessee for our next oil change?
We took a ride down to Pickwick Dam. There was a visitor center at the locks and we drove down to tour it. Someone should correct the signs. There was chain link fence all around the place and no trespassing signs every couple of feet. We got the message and turned around but were very glad we weren't towing down that road which dead ended.
We did find a real flea market in Crump. Yep, this was what Bill says are real fleas. No one was selling ball caps or socks. As usual we didn't buy much, just a couple of books.
I really wanted to get some tomatoes but just can't seem to find a way to pull the fiver down the road without finding my tomatoes all bruised. I put a plastic separator liner from the last batch of peaches into a basket but they were still bruised. Maybe it's the heat in the rig on driving days. I just hate throwing them away.
We did take advantage of our free admission we received at Shiloh for the River Museum. It was very well done, for a county museum.
The weather has been in the 90's but there has been a breeze everyday.
One thing I like about this park is that you can wash your vehicles. As a matter of fact, if you are here longer than 3 months, you're required to wash your RV. Bill took advantage and washed the truck. Of course, a wash job isn't enough, it has to be waxed too. At least he parked it under the trees and did it in the shade. Bill doesn't like car washes because they don't do a good job.
Do you think it will rain tomorrow?
Tomorrow we are headed to a Corp of Engineers park near Nashville. We can only stay four days as they are booked the rest of the time. John and Karen Knoll told us we needed to visit Franklin and last year we were headed there, but Bill had so many problems with chiggers we ended up going north instead, hoping to get rid of them.
