#252 – Friday, May 31, 2019 – Weekend Getaway

Left home this morning for a summer, lovely warm drive to Eureka Springs, AR.  I had a reservation at Lake Leatherwood City Park.  I arrived in the afternoon and the site was unacceptable and you had to drive up a steep, loose rock hill with a wash out ditch in the middle.  I barely made it back up the hill with the camper.

They were nice and refunded my money.

I moved on down the road to Kettle Campground.  I really don’t like this campground either but it is way better than Lake Leatherwood.  The sites here are just jammed in everywhere too close together.  I am next to a permanent resident with too much stuff.  The electric box is only a foot off the ground.  My water hook up was in the neighbors site and she already had a hose hooked to it to water her plants.  The sewer hook up pipe is uncapped with a board and a rock on it.

 

 

After setting up I met up with the ladies from Camp Unite – Zone 11 (MO & AR) for the first women only camping event for this new organization.  There were 20 women there.  It was interesting to meet them.

It was a diverse group.  From retired ladies to a prosecutor.  Their camping experiences were just as diverse from well traveled to some tent campers.  The rigs were just as diverse.  Tents, vans, a camper configured utility trailer, a camper configured panel van, an Aliner and a renovated vintage trailer.  A few stayed in rental cabins as well.  I would guess the ages would be 50 and up. Several were from the Hot Springs, AR area.  Several were from the St. Louis area.
