10/24-25/18 Ashdown, AR.

DAY #6

DSC_0070 (2).JPGHere I am in Southern Arkansas.  the park is just off the road so getting in was quick and easy, which was nice.  Really quiet in the park, just a handful of other campers.  It does make it convenient with so few people especially when you want to use the bathroom or take a shower (no, no water in the trailer yet, I don’t know why I’m dragging my feet).  Had not slept very well up to this point and with the misty, overcast, and cool weather, I finally was able to get some sleep. Some sleep, geez, it was most of the day.  Did go into Ashdown later in the afternoon to visit the local Wal-Mart and checked the town out a little bit.  Sadly, another small town where time has moved on. (no pictures? ugh!).

DAY #7

The next day started out chilly and rainy and continued that way throughout the day, it was pretty much a washout.  I just hung around the trailer and putted around on the internet.  I have a hot spot on my phone so I can use my laptop, but man, it can be brutally slow.  Also didn’t get any TV reception (dear god NO…) and I’ve got to say, I’ve really been conditioned to have TV on even if its background noise.  I really noticed it sitting around today.  Another thing noticed were the trucks loaded with lumber rumbling along the road day and night. The park is located below an elevated roadway which runs across a dam about a quarter-mile down the road.  I’ve noticed a lot of lumber activity around these parts.  They bring the trees into Ashdown where a huge plant is located.

All in all, a couple of uneventful (but relaxing) days in which I didn’t do much.  I did happen to see in meandering around what little I did, an interesting and unique way of apartment rentals. Yes, there old rail box cars converted to apartments and located out in the middle of nowhere.DSC_0077 (2).JPGDSC_0075 (2).JPG

Arkansas is as I said earlier a very pretty state.  I’ve enjoyed my time here and would come back any day.  Now it’s time to get ready to hit the road again for new sites.  Onward to Louisiana.
