Donna’s Campout notes:
Weather was kind of awful, really windy, rained and that made us think of scheduling next years September campout one week earlier. Colleen and Al Belyea came over for a visit, they didn’t bring their camper; we all enjoyed seeing them. Vern & Doris Jewett had lined up a very interesting and informative tour of Camp Grafton, We toured the “School House” which is a regional training center for all branches of the military as well as police and highway patrol, etc, also toured their Chapel and the Governors House.
We had a nice campground, it was by a car wash and I think we were all interested by the heavy traffic coming through the car wash, and such clean cars going in to be washed!, we found out they had a membership and could wash their car every day. For happy hour on Wednesday, Vern Jewett made us some extra tasty little fried things wrapped in bacon. Our Wednesday pot luck supper featured delicious pulled pork sandwiches and other good things and desert! Thursday evening supper was at Pizza Ranch, and because of the rain, Friday morning breakfast was moved to Main Street Café which was downtown.
I brought my baby ducks to the campout, 3 assorted, leftovers from the Tractor Supply Store in Hazen.
