There was a larger-than-expected attendance for this campout – 19 members and six visitors, three of whom joined us. Georgia Lewis, our wagon master, was expecting only about 16 rigs. The park manager made sure we all had hookups, doubling several of us up in the campsites and stringing out large extension cords and water hoses to accommodate us. It was quite a sight!
Bob Williams did a fish fry. He loves to fish and to cook! During the summer at home in Indiana he stocks his freezer with his catch and then, in the winter when he visits his sister Georgia Lewis, he treats us to his cooking at every campout.
Several of us visited Monument Hill State Historic Site on a bluff above La Grange. The ranger was very knowledgeable about the history of the monument. It memorializes the soldiers who drew the black beans which resulted in their massacre by Santa Ana’s army.
We had dinner Saturday night at Boss House of Steaks.
