We went to Meramec State Park. The first site we hit was #1, full hook up but no wifi,no phone, no tv. I was learning to adjust when Carol one of the other host asked if we wanted to come up where other host were better WiFi, I could do WiFi calling and better tv. So we did but it wasn’t full hook up just electric so we filled up with water and used a taxi to empty sewer. It was better. God always provides. When Jerry parked it we hit first scratch little sign he didn’t see. We fixed it and you can’t even tell.
Kel came to spend the night and hike. We went to one hike and I almost got us lost. The leaves weren’t changing it but still so beautiful. We walked down to the river and saw a lot of lizards basking on a rock in the sun. Lots of nature here deer are everywhere. Always enjoy our time with family and friends. The one cave looks like Jesus tomb .
We don’t work as much at Meramec but there are 5 host, the days you work are long. But 2-3 days a week so lots of free time. We had grandkids out to camp again just love the memories we are making. Jackson and Kayla helped with us cleaning sites on Sunday they are getting big and hard workers. We went to playground, biked, made s’mores and got a good family picture in front of Rv for a contest at Midwest. Kayla really is beginning to like cooking.
Sarah and I met at Toni and Toms one day then went to the zoo. We see the kids I think more than before. Except for Josh and Carly. But as soon as baby comes we will go visit again. I feel so blessed to live this life and get to make so many memories. A few pictures from the zoo hadn’t been in a few years it was a perfect day for it.
Had time to do a few craft fairs and time to get ready for them. My favorite was at Washington State Park and seeing friends from when we hosted there.
October spook fest at Meramec is busy. They have trick or treating, pumpkin contest which turned into lots of drama, site decorating contest and more. I took a few pictures of some sites. The pumpkins contest was drama because 2 host wanted it done different ways. Meramec does not have someone in charge right now so as soon as knew person steps up I’m hoping things will settle down. We will come back next year. Plus you get double camping coupons here. We have enough fur a 7 day vacation next year. It was fun over all.
Almost forgot to tell we got to go on a cave tour as a benefit to hosting. The tour was of Fishermen’s cave.
Here is a view one morning while doing rounds, and some at our site it was nice and quiet and we faced nature. Deer came right up to our site.
If we didn’t start hosting at the state parks I would not of realized how nice the state parks are at least in Missouri will find out about Texas State Parks in January. Feeling so blessed to live this life, camping with my sweet hubby, get to see family and grandkids, stay active and not work. Meeting great people. The other host were really nice at Meramec a little drama but it was with others so I stayed out of it.
We will spent a night at Walmart in Kirkwood then went to see Chris and Sara and kids took Kayla to get fabric fur her costume she is making it this year. I’m excited to see it. Visited with Toni and Tom too.
Headed back to Ford to get a/c fixed Jerry was driving did not cut corner wide enough and boy what a mess everything flew out of cabinets not permanent damage. Plan on what to get braised better next time. At least camper git real good cleaning and a/c works and they will take care of arm of chair.
Back at our home base Lost Valley and trees are finally changing here was my first view. Feels like home
