Saturday 6/1/13… It stayed pretty warm last night, probably stayed around 70. I will say that one thing we miss about Grants Pass is it cools down at night so it’s normally comfortable sleeping even mid summer.
Once up and around we grabbed Jack and went for a good long morning walk. And good thing we did it when we did because it wasn’t long after we returned that it started raining.
It didn’t rain solid all day but it sure had a few good down pours and showers between the downpours. Enough to keep us inside most of the day.
I tried to go out and fly my helicopter at one point but that was short lived. It was very wet and there was just enough wind to make it impossible to get any good fly time.
So,,, we are not getting satellite and our cell service is intermittent. I’m not sure what’s up with the satellite,, we seem to get a strong number from the transponder but that’s it. I spent a good chunk of time trying to make it work but became frustrated and gave up. I’m hoping that when we move to our next spot I find it was just the area and not something else.
Things like the satellite getting a transponder and no picture and the cell phone working on and off just drive me crazy. I’m much better off if I just KNOW we have no cell service or we KNOW we can’t get satellite because of the tree’s and be done with it. But when things are off and on again in the same spot it just drives be bonkers!!
With all the rain we had yesterday they cancelled the Golf Cart Safari we had hopped to go on last night as well!!
By mid afternoon I was getting a bit restless so we decided to jump in the jeep and drive to Parkin Archeological State Park that is only 20 miles away. They have a visitor center that is supposed to have a bunch of displays.
I was so willing to do ANYTHING that I didn’t think about the time until we were on the road. I asked Diane what time they closed and after looking at the brochure it said 5 and it was 4 at that point. So that idea went out the window.
But we drove far enough to get good cell service and decided to take advantage of it and call for our reservations at the Graceland RV Park in Memphis. That’s where we are headed next on Monday for 2 nights.
Then it was back home where we just made a pot of soup and hunkered down and watched a movie we had recorded.
When we went to bed it was pouring outside and we both felt bad for the tent campers we saw spread out through the park.
Tomorrow we plan to attempt the Parkin State Park again.
