Looking for the true camping experience. There are self-serve campfire wood stations about every mile so we stopped for a bundle. Buyer beware that not all of it is dry. I did my best Jeremiah Johnson imitation and cut some kindling (remember I have a hatchet), used the pizza box cardboard for a starter and figured one match and we’d have a crackling inferno. NOT, I spent the next 30 minutes on my hands and knees with head in the fire, butt in the air, blowing on the few coals we had, had praying for sustained ignition. I finally got it and though it was never a roaring fire, it served the purpose and the S’mores were delicious.
The Limekiln State Park does not have utilities which means no electricity, which means no AC. With the weather cooler than expected it was “tolerable” in the RV but with 4 adults, 2 dogs and two fans going, it was less than desirable but fun nevertheless.
Prior to leaving Delta Lake this morning, I emptied the waste tanks and filled the fresh water so we were in good shape at “utilityless” Limekiln. The mosquitoes were awful and standing next to the RV holding the water hose I was a helpless victim. My only option was to keep moving. Cheryl caught the event and if only I could set it to music we might have the new dance craze.Tomorrow we hope to ride to North Hudson about 60 miles away. We haven’t set the route yet but rest assured I will be looking over Tom’s shoulder. Only six more riding days…….SIX. That’s wild. Anything can still happen though, so fingers are crossed.
