Campground Closing Phase

This campground goes into an entirely different phase once Labor Day is over. For the first few days it was really nice, we were able to have a campfire and just act like guests but that gets old really fast when we realize that the guests, seasonals and even the owners do not come to visit.

We are stuck here until the first of October and until then, only one of us at a time are able to take a short trip to town when supplies are needed. For the most part Jerry does this because I learned fast that it makes me feel worse to leave for a short time and have to come back so soon. It works for Jerry better because he prefers getting away for a short time than not at all.

This time of the year, the weather takes a drastic turn…it has been windy, rainy and freezing. The temperatures dropping below freezing at night and only warming up to the 50’s during the day.

We had so much energy at first that we really tackled many of the projects, so there is not much left to do and for the most part it is so cold, wet and windy we just want to snuggle up and not venture out of our rig…but we do.

What I wouldn’t do right now for the sounds of a full campground…a child’s shrill…a crackling fire…laughter…footsteps on the gravel road. Instead, the raindrops on the roof are no longer the sound of peacefulness but instead are very annoying. The windows are constantly steamed up once again due to the moisture in the air, we are running our humidifier and heater almost non-stop.

Counting down the days…very soon now we will be able to drive off into the next phase of our journey and travel around the country, heading southwest to some warmer climates…soon…very soon.
