Our Location: Big Buck Resort
(205 Sparks Road, Hornsby, TN)
A very cold and blustery day. Wet, damp and windy would describe today. We stayed around the 45F/7.2C mark for the high but with the wind it felt much colder. Tonight the temps are supposed to drop well below the freezing mark.
Riley and I walked only once around the park and stopped at the office to chat with Tina (park owner) and pay for the last two days. Tina is a truly wonderful person. The park is a fantastic place and we enjoy it greatly. It's a Passport America park and so we pay only $17.50 US per day. We are a short drive from Memphis, and Jackson, TN as well as Corinth, MS. The small towns of Bolivar and Selmer have a great deal of charm and offer some interesting sights. I think it will be a regular stop for us on our travels through this area.
I chatted with my buddy Ron this morning, catching up on all the gossip and just touching base. Riley and I had hoped to meet up with him and his lovely wife Sharon some time over the winter but that won't be happening. Ron has a few issues that he's taking care of and that will perhaps keep them at home until into the new year. Hopefully they can pull Newwwmar out of his shed and get a few weeks in the sun in Mississippi . Good luck buddy.
Butch from Butch's RV Repair stopped by around 2 pm and managed to get the lights all working again EXCEPT the tail lights of course. Tomorrow morning Riley and I will pack up and head south to Rienzi, MS just outside of Corinth to his shop. If necessary we can spend the night with hook ups there but I'm hoping to be on the road tomorrow night. We shall see how things go and I'll try to keep you updated. I chatted with Dad again tonight just to keep him in the loop and to hopefully ease his mind and make him worry less.
The rest of the day we spent indoors as it's just too cold outside for me. This damp cold makes too many things hurt and I'm ready to get out of here. A few days drive to the west is warmth and heat, and it looks like no rain so we're excited to be heading that way.
A sad note tonight, during my chat with Ron this morning I learned that our friend Chuck passed away a few weeks ago. Our hearts go out to his wife Jeanne and son Josh of West Virginia. Chuck was a very quiet man, shy and soft spoken. Jeanne is a fire cracker and full of life. They made a wonderful couple.
Again no pictures sorry. Hopefully tomorrow we'll have some for you. Thanks for stopping by, hope you've all had a great day.
Until next time.. take care, be safe,
