The last part of my day put me in the hills. Nice to have a change of scenery, but I don't know if I'm ready to have the hills back... I was about 4 miles to camp and a nice man pulled up in a truck and we got to talking and he was telling me that the road I needed to take to get to the camp was down a 3 mile dirt road that was very twisty and bumpy and probably wouldn't be very safe to walk on with my cart. He was tempted to ask if I wanted a ride, but knew that it when be an appropriate to ask. So I mentioned maybe he could meet me somewhere down that road and we could throw my cart into his truck and I could ride in the back and he could take me down to the camp. He said that the road was down by an old, one-room school house that was now a home. He had to go into town and would meet me down there in a hour or so, his name is Gene and his wife is Robbie.
When I got to the school house, I realized that he was talking about a different camp. There was also a Scott Boys Camp not too far from were I was staying. My road was down another couple of miles and so I kept walking, wondering if Gene would be worried about me since he wouldn't be finding me down that road.
The camp is set on top of a big, steep hill....... Tons of fun to push a 100 lb cart up! I met Pat and Lorrie at Bear Camp and they showed me to my cabin and as we were talking, we heard someone coming up the steps, and it turned out to be Gene and his wife Robbie. He was hoping that I found my way to the right camp. They offered to take me to dinner at the Mexican restaurant in Connersville. Lorrie said that her neighbor, Janet, was coming down to give me some soup, corn bread, and peach cobbler. So I decided that would be my breakfast and I would go with Gene and Robbie to get Mexican food.
Janet came over and dropped off the food, and we chatted for a moment before Gene and Robbie came back to pick me up. The soup, by the way, was great!!! All home-made, with home-grown veggies and beef from down the road. Sooo good, so was the corn bread and cobbler too. Thanks Janet!
The Mexican food was really good too. Gene and Robbie were great, felt like I was meant to meet them, we clicked instantly. They took me down to Walmart to try and find me some new ear muffs and we ended up buying me a little bit of food instead. They took me back to the cabin around 9 and I pretty much just passed out.
I met so many wonderful people today. Thank you so much to everyone!
