Friday morning we did our usual routine returning emails and doing daily website stuff.
In the afternoon, we visited with Jim & Judy for a couple of hours until we were hungry enough to depart and eat our leftovers from last night.
After that, I got a good fire going and our new friends joined us around the fire for a bit.
The nearly full moon couldn't quite escape the clouds, but it was a nice calm, lovely night.
After awhile, we packed it in. Linda's Christmas tree was illuminating our large picture window.
Saturday was Linda's birthday. It was a relatively mild, but cloudy day, and we didn't have anything planned.
Since we are pulling out tomorrow, I went ahead and checked tire pressures. All were fine, but two of my tire pressure monitoring sensors aren't working, so I'll have to have the company help me troubleshoot or send me replacements.
Later, I walked over to Jim & Judy's. After doing a little checking, I discovered that I had set one valve on their water heater by-pass system in the incorrect position. So cold water was mixing with the hot water and they could only get warm but not hot water. They confirmed that was the case, so I crawled into their basement and fixed that problem with a quick turn of the valve handle. Always learning something new. :)
While I was doing that, Linda rode her bike up to the Heritage Farm to feed apples and carrots to the donkeys. Two problems. First, she hadn't realized how hilly it is between the campground and the farm and the ride was a struggle. :) Second, the donkeys wouldn't come to her - she said it seemed the goats in the pen were bullies and the donkeys were scared to approach with the larger goats around. But the goats and sheep got some treats.
Jim & Judy had invited us for some sloppy joes and dessert for Linda's birthday, but there was a change in plans. They had heard good things about another restaurant in town, The Flyin' Cowboy, so they invited us to join them there and then come back for birthday dessert.
The food at the Flyin' Cowboy was very good although we stuck to pretty simple dishes. Also, it is home to the "free scoop". They have an ice cream shop inside the restaurant and when you finish your meal, you just walk up and one of the servers will give you a hand-dipped scoop of your choice. Looked like it would be double dessert tonight. :)
Back at the campground, Jim & Judy dropped us off and we gave them a few minutes before we joined them at their new rig. They had gotten a cake and a card for Linda.
It was a very sweet gesture. We sat and talked and answered more questions. They'll never remember everything we told them, but hopefully they feel more comfortable with the basics. :)
With hugs and handshakes we said goodnight. Both of us are leaving tomorrow. Earlier, I gave Jim just a brief review of the dumping process, but we'll try to get to the dump station with them just to make sure there are no disasters. Someone did that for us at our very first campground where we had to use the dump station, and it was much appreciated. :)
Back home I watched the Kentucky - Indiana basketball game I had recorded. Wow, what a thriller. It wasn't the result I was hoping for, but it is great to see the Indiana program competitive again.
Well, that's it for our time here at General Coffee State Park. Except for an occasional distant train, it was so peaceful and quiet in this campground. Of course, it's quiet because it is the off-season and there are more volunteers camped here than regular campers, but we really enjoyed our stay.
On to Jacksonville tomorrow. See ya. :)
