Kansas Bound

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.
