|Kansas is very interesting|
We left Guthrie, OK and made tracks towards Kansas. We planned to stay at Hillsdale State Park, and stay we did. Parking/backing in was not an easy feat, and that is kind of an understatement. The plus side of that is that we attracted some help, a guy that we learned has cancer and was given two months to live, and that was almost 18 months ago. Don’t know his story other than that, but he was a God-send for Steve. He helped him back into our site when I was clearly not the help he needed, so the cars backed up behind us could get by and on about their business. We attempted some fun & relaxation & met our next door camping neighbors over dinner. Kind of sad story…long & short of it is that we tried to be hospitable & pour some love into these kids in the short time we were around them. The plus side? I think we accomplished that, plus the girls got to fish & pick blackberries with new friends, & we got some farm fresh eggs, some awesome venison jerky, sausage, & burgers. We also learned that we do need to establish some rules/boundaries for new visitors. I’m just not that comfortable with those we’ve just met bounding in & out of our home without knocking first or searching through our drawers & cabinets to see what we’ve got, even if childish curiosity is the motivator.
