We’re in the process of wrapping up our second week of updating the guest guide for Keystone State Park in Oklahoma. It’s been overall enjoyable staying here. It’s not been crowded, except for a couple of days on the weekends, and the weather while hot, has been made bearable by a near constant breeze and the natural beauty of the park and Keystone Lake.
This is our third park guest guide update and it gets a little easier with each one. Bonnie’s taken to it quickly and enjoys the challenge. I’ve been a little slower to adapt and while I like the challenge as well, I’m not particularly happy with the general locations we’ve been directed to. However, the truth is much of that is within our long term control and so I’m going to try and be a bit more flexible in the short term.
We finish this job this coming Friday, which marks four straight weeks of working — Bonnie and I both agree that’s too much without a break. We’ll leave here on Sunday, August 9th, to enjoy two weeks off before our next job near Omaha, NE.
We decided since we’re this far west we’d go a little further. We’ll do two longer days of travel, with a day in-between, and arrive in the Colorado Springs on August 12th where we’ll stay for six days until starting back east towards Omaha.
After Omaha we drop southeast to Memphis and then back to do a park in North Carolina. That should take us almost to Thanksgiving. Man, time’s flying by!
