Pow Wow, Here we come!

Today was moving day and while Gene is normally up early, Sandy was also up by 6 AM.  That is un-usual.   But after breakfast, she confessed that she needed to rework and print a newsletter outline for a gal in Iowa that she is helping by remote control  (A new user of Open Office.)   I knew there had to be a better reason than "we were moving!"

But all went well and we were on the road by 9:30 AM.  We had a nice road to Fort McCoy and upon our arrival, we spotted a sign towards the post office.   We stopped at the post office, as we are expecting mail, general delivery type.    However, it was not there.  It seems that the Zip Code for Fort McCoy is the same as the code for Salt Springs and after being here for 2 days, they sent it to Salt Springs.  A quick phone call and they said it will be back in Ft. McCoy tomorrow morning.   I thought ZIP codes were to be unique to each post office!   I guess it is not always true.

Yesterday morning, we headed to Starke for church at 10 AM.   However upon arrival, we found the building closed.  It is a small congregation and apparently they have moved locations, with no forwarding sign on the old rented facility.   We should have called the pastor on Friday or Saturday just to confirm the arrangements.  This is the first time it has happened to us in 16 years.

So we did our weekly shopping at Walmart and returned to Waldo.   In the PM, it was a very quiet day, other than the constant din of the Motocross bikes just south of us in the city park. Thankfully, it all closed down by sundown.

We are the first of about 25 SKP campers for the pow wow.   There are about 20 rigs here,   scattered about the grounds  (20 acres worth).   The grounds is all grass with some big oak trees heavily laden with moss.   It will be interesting to see how the pow wow develops and how they park the cars.
